Gravity Falls: Journal 3
The show Gravity Falls was all about mysteries, ciphers, and fun–and boy, is this book the perfect combination of all three. Journal 3 is precisely what it promises: a real-world version of the book Dipper finds that kickstarts and fuels so many adventures, right down to his own observations, additions by his sister, and more.
This book is absolutely gorgeous, the layout crisp and layered and exciting. It feels sketched in and scribbled on and weathered, even though it’s in topnotch condition. Replete with encryptions, Easter eggs, character revelations, and all sorts of delightful little asides and insights, this is a masterpiece of world-building and fan service. It does exactly what a tie-in book should: tell its own story while elevating and enhancing the universe of the original work.
Even a newcomer to the show will enjoy this rich reading experience, so I have no doubt that devoted fans of the show will get much more out of it. Although it’s geared for middle-grade readers, people of all ages will find plenty here to keep them engaged.
