The Buried Puppet

A crate, once buried deep beneath the soil, is discovered on your doorstep. The truth of a ghastly crime is hidden within its contents and a subtle, yet strangely indecipherable scent, seeps through the cracks. In spite of yourself, you pick it up and bring it inside.

And so, you begin to unravel the story and bear the burden of young Jacob’s confession. Feeling alone against the world with nothing but a journal as his closest confidante, a teenage boy struggles through very tough times.

Now within your hands, begins the revelation of a dark, comedic and utterly bizarre horror. Page after page divulges an ever-troubling descent.

There are codes to break and secrets darker than you could ever fathom, but be warned: uncoiling the mystery of Jacob’s buried puppet is highly dangerous. If you attempt it be careful; you just may find yourself in stitches.


    Synopsis

    This is the story of a young man’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.

    Audience

    The main themes of this experience are isolation, dark humour, bullying, haunting, murder and demonic possession. Your recipient will enjoy it if they are fans of horror, comedy, puppets, the occult, or just strange stories set in small-town America.

    The Buried Puppet is unsettling and therefore not suitable for young audiences. It has has been officially classified 13+ by a third party rating expert.

    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.

    Nailed it again!

    This is my second purchase from The Mysterious Package Company and like the first, it did not disappoint! The recipients freaked out a little at first, but once they realized it was a gift from my wife and me they settled down and throughly enjoyed the experience.

    Short but enjoyable

    Would be five stars if it was a little longer.
