The wizard’s curse book

You read the book out loud as the dusty attic grows quiet with fear.

The book reads:

A Wizard’s Curse



This house belongs to I, a mighty Wizard.
You have disturbed my peace, a spell on you is triggered.
Disappear you will,
Unless you have the skill.
Solve and outsmart a series of puzzles
To find my secret spell book and fix all your troubles.
Beware! Many struggle at the first task.
But what is it, you may ask?
A box that takes you backwards
Will surely take you forwards.
Many families have tried before and failed
They disappeared and never prevailed
Will this happen to you? Is this your fate?
Time will tell, only 60 minutes to wait.
