The Enchanted Slumber

Dragon illustration from fairy tale mystery for kids

In this fairy-tale themed mystery, a knight, a troll, a librarian and a dragon need the help of a brave and clever kid to help them wake a princess who has been asleep for 699 years. Kids receive personalized letters, many of them in wax-sealed parchment envelopes that contain objects, ciphers and clues.

The Enchanted Slumber was written by a Mom, illustrated by a Mom and designed by a Mom. The story has strong messages about love, friendship and working together to face seemingly insurmountable tasks.

Ages 8 and up, or 6-7 with help from an adult. Great for girls and boys.

Mail Order Mysteries are not for children under three. Small parts could present a choking hazard.

She still talks about it

My 8 year old did this and included her 5 year old brother. She FULLY still believes it’s real and is hoping to meet the princess one day. What an amazing experience, I’m so grateful it exists!!! She enjoyed the code deciphering and solving the puzzle. Thank you thank you thank you!

The Enchanted Slumber

I purchased tThe Enchanted Slumber for my three granddaughters, eight year old twins and nine year old sister. The feedback was great—the girls read it together and all enjoyed it.

Such a unique gift

This was a gift for my niece and she absolutely LOVED it. Not only was it a way to get the whole family engaged, but it also gave her something exciting to look forward to for a few weeks. She absolutely loved every bit of the experience.

Fun for the whole family!

My 6 and 9 year old had so much fun with this. I didn't know what to expect, but everything was so well done. The kids were so excited to see if there was another letter waiting for them when they got home. Once we were all done, my oldest asked I had arranged it and asked if they could do another!
