The Backpack

Exploring more of the Manor now, you notice there are some rooms that just won’t open to you, not until you collect more clues scattered about the mysterious manor.

Now upstairs, you enter into what appears to be an unused Guest Bedroom. There are no personal belongings inside, but upon investigating the shower, you notice a backpack.

It rattles and calls to you. It’s a clue…

Play the video to hear the reading challenge.

In order to collect the backpack, you must read a book by a new-to-you author.

Once you have completed your reading challenge, be sure to fill in this form with the book you read! Alternatively, if you work in a school, then fill in this form instead.
