The Enchanted Slumber

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.

Pia’s BD present

I gave this to my grandniece for her 7th birthday. She loved it. My nephew said she couldn’t wait to get the packages. This was the 5th mystery I gave as a BD gift. They were all big hits.


Scarlett loved this mystery! It got the whole family involved. We will definitely order some more of these and I’ve passed the word to several of my friends about these. Love it!

Perfect Christmas gift!!

I bought this gift for two households with kids from ages 4 to 8. All loved the adventure!! Long after other Christmas toys had been forgotten they were awaiting their clues, sharing the riddles with everyone and falling in love with a story they were part of! Absolutely a wonderful gift and made Aunt Amy the cool aunt this Christmas!!


This was a really fun one! My daughter was fully engaged and absolutely loved the special prize!
