NEW YORK (TheBlaze/AP) — The New York Police Department is investigating a burglary at actress Famke Janssen's Manhattan penthouse. While that's scary enough, what the culprit left behind makes the scenario even creepier.

Police say the "X-Men" actress told officers that when she came home Saturday, she found a children's book that didn't belong to her near her bed.

"The Lonely Doll" was on a shelf inside her bedroom. It's about a lonely doll that wants to play with someone and is friended by two teddy bears. A description for the book, which is currently being sold on on Amazon, reads:

Once there was a little doll. Her name was Edith. She lived in a nice house and had everything she needed except someone to play with. She was lonely! Then one morning Edith looked into the garden and there stood two bears! Since it was first published in 1957, The Lonely Doll has established itself as a unique children's classic. Through innovative photography Dare Wright brings the world of dolls to life and entertains us with much more than just a story. Edith, the star of the show, is a doll from Wright's childhood, and Wright selected the bear family with the help of her brother. With simple poses and wonderful expressions, the cast of characters is vividly brought to life to tell a story of friendship.

Police say there was no sign of forced entry and the apartment wasn't in disarray. It wasn't clear if anything was taken. Even more odd is the fact that Janssen told authorities she's the only one with access to her penthouse. Authorities say the investigation into the burglary continues.

Janssen plays telepath Jean Grey in the "X-Men" franchise. She played a Bond girl in "GoldenEye."
