3, sequel to 2, is a book written by an unknown author and is part of a series of at least three volumes containing research and information about the supernatural in Gravity Falls. Volume 3 appears to mainly contain information about magical creatures the author discovered during their six year study of Gravity Fall's mysteries. (Similar to a Bestiary) Due to their suspicion that someone was after the book, the author hid it in a hole in the ground that could only be opened by flipping a switch in a hollow tree. The book is incomplete. After an unknown amount of time (but at least long enough for there to be accumulation of dust, rust and spider webs), Dipper found the book while putting up advertisements for the Mystery Shack in the forest. He currently possesses volume 3.
Pages from 3 include the following:
Pages and text
June 18 It's hard to believe it's been six years since I began researching the strange and wonderous secrets of Gravity Falls, Oregon. In all my travels, never have I observed so many curious things! Gravity Falls is indeed a geographical oddity.
Unfortunately, my suspicions have been confirmed, I'm being watched. I must hide this book before 'he' finds it. Remember, in Gravity Falls there is no-one you can trust. Trust no one!
Known for their pale skin and bad attitudes, these creatures are often mistaken for teenagers. Beware Gravity Falls' nefarious undead.
Little men of the Gravity Falls Forest. Weaknesses: ?
Always have a reason of some kind.
Are they watching me?
- Visible only at night
- No retinal cord
- "No response to contact"
Finally back safe and sound from one of the weirdest days at Gravity Falls. This journal told me there was no one in Gravity Falls I could trust, but when you battle a hundred gnomes side-by-side with someone, you realize that they've probably always got your back.
In my investigations I have recently made a discovery Nathaniel Northwest may not be the founder of Gravity Falls! I believe the proof to this secret is buried somewhere in the enclosed document. If only I could crack the code...
Just inside the front cover the book has an eyepiece or small magnifying glass attached to it via a cord. Its purpose is unknown and it has not been shown again since.
