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.

The enchanted slumber

Our granddaughter loves this! She is 10 years old and truly believed she was helping to solve this. Every day she rode her bike down to their mailbox to see if she had gotten something. It was an amazing gift.

Awesome gift

It wasn’t what I expected, I thought it was going to be more like giving clues not riddles kind a more like the game clue solving the mystery. However the gift was for my granddaughter who is 15 years old and she absolutely loved it.

We enjoyed every letter we received. The amazing details and story involved in each letter made our family wait every week for the next letter. The kids are hoping to continue to receive more letter. 😃
