We all know adolescence is tricky — a seemingly never-ending period of transition and confusion. It is also, more gravely, the stretch of life when we are most vulnerable to the darkest forces from the other side.

During these years the truth is more often found between the lines than clearly printed on the page. It is a time when a lonely kid might reveal secrets to no one but a single, trusted friend: his diary. 

 

The Weeping Book is the story, in his own words, of Justin Gray’s first trip away from home. While exploring an age-old city steeped in history, he finds a mysterious amulet and decides to keep it. That’s when the blackouts and shocking behaviour begin. Is he descending into madness, or has something far older and darker taken root within him? To solve this mystery you’ll have to dig up the secrets hidden in the pages of Justin’s journal, and in the seemingly unrelated documents that accompany it: a photograph, a missing poster, a postcard from an unknown place, and of course, the strange amulet at the center of it all.

The Buried Puppet is the story of Jacob Stelnecki’s confession, written on the pages of his detention-centre notebook. It tells of a boy moving to a new town after the loss of his mother. The bullies pick on him, his father grows distant, and — if that wasn’t bad enough — he starts seeing ghosts emerging from his bedroom walls. That’s when he finds a hidden puppet, and puts it on his hand… Mr. Bellylaugh, it seems is able to keep the ghosts, the bullies and the loneliness at bay. But is the puppet really Jacob’s ally, or is there more to him than meets the eye? The answer might be found among the pages of his journal, in his free-hand sketches, through library database searches, or somewhere far more devious.

In both these stories, told through the writings of desperate teenagers, there is a dark and terrible truth to be discovered. But in searching it out, you should be careful — for, without the necessary precautions, the darkest of truths may also find you.


Audience

Both these experiences involve murder, hauntings and demonic possession. Your recipient will enjoy them if they are fans of horror, the occult, and gothic Americana. These stories are unsettling and therefore not suitable for young audiences (under 13) or those with sensitive constitutions.

Wonderful, unique gift!

I ordered this for my son & his girlfriend. They are both into scary things so this fit the bill. The girlfriend tore into it immediately, but doesn’t like keeping the artifacts out of the box, because it creeps her out, especially the puppet. Also, customer service was incredible. I had to have it delivered by some way other than USPS because of package theft at my son’s apartment complex and they worked with me to have it delivered by UPS to a UPS store for pickup. My son has said he will definitely get others as a gifts for his girlfriend. Always looking for unique gifts for my grown kids and this company has hit it on the nose. Will be a repeat customer!

Fun, creepy evening in

There was a definite point in the narrative where it crosses the point from feeling like a slightly interactive horror story where you're watching characters try to figure out what's going on before they get taken out, to being about you trying to figure out what's going on before you get taken out. A very fun albeit creepy night in.

Good Starter Mystery Experience for Young Adult+ Audiences

This activity is fun with friends and family (recommended for young adult+ audience). For my partner and I, it took a little more than an hour. This would also be a good starter mystery experience if you are new to The Mysterious Package Company. For those interested in a mystery experience comparable price wise and with a slightly higher difficulty, I would recommend 'The Weeping Book.'

Fascinating Story with An Easy Puzzle

Everything, from the journal, weathered library card, inhaler and even the box it all comes in are well crafted. The story draws you in, much like an episode of "The Twilight Zone" and my wife and I enjoyed reading through it. There was not much to solve at the end and we found the answer without having to figure out the puzzle, though we did that too. Very enjoyable for those who may want to read a creepy story on a stormy day but we like to work jointly on puzzles rather than read together; nonetheless, a fun hour or so.
