As a child, I spent most of my time curled up in a corner with a cat on my knee and a book or drawing pad in my hand. I would have adored The Mystery of Journeys Crowne which gives creative children a full license to draw their own adventure story and follow cryptic clues to unravel the story. A story page at the start of the book sets the scene, but then you are left to your own devices to work your way through a variety of tasks and solve the mystery. In addition to deciphering cryptic clues (some quite difficult and requiring some reasearch) and searching for hidden items, a lot of left to the child's imagination and they are asked to draw their own characters.
In addition to being an absorbing game, the book features K Michael Crawford's breathtakingly colourful illustrations. These alone are worth buying the book for, and add further stimulus to a young and vivid imagination.
This book is available from Amazon and most online book stores.
