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. Each week for six weeks kids receive personalized letters, many of them in wax-sealed parchment envelopes that contain objects, ciphers and clues. Enchanted Slumber is a twisting, turning take on an old fairy tale: the knight is lazy, the wicked queen feels remorse, the troll loves to read and happy endings don’t happen without effort and teamwork. Kids aren’t just part of the story, they are the heroes of the story.
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 (see FAQ for more info). Great for girls and boys.
Enchanted Slumber is a six week subscription containing five lettermail envelopes and a final package.
