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.

Loved it!

I had two kids, ages 8 and 9, and they LOVED it! They also included their friends (ages 8-11) in on the fun, and it was so awesome to see them all working together toward a common goal! They got excited each week to get another letter!

Fun activity our children still talk about fondly

Our daughter would safely check the mail daily while this was ongoing and incorporated details of the story into much of her daily conversations. We still say “the answer is always love” in our household and I appreciate this activity for that take away.
