About the book:

September’s book is an imaginative adventure all about bringing maps to life! This story is perfect for fans of A Good Kind of Trouble, Amari and the Night Brothers, and the Tristan Strong series!

This book is an unforgettable fantasy that School Library Journal calls “a compelling story about friendship, fighting for what you believe in, and finding your voice. A first purchase for middle-grade collections.”

Our special edition will include a color-swapped dust jacket with an exclusive reverse design, plus it will come with a signed bookplate and letter from the author!

About the goodies:

This box will include items inspired by Lord Of The Rings, Nevermoor, Strangeworlds Travel Agency, The Unmapped Chronicles, and more!


Sneak Peek #1: 

Every MAP IT OUT box will include a special OwlCrate Jr exclusive guided activity book designed by Steph Stillwell and printed by Scout Books!

Steph (@stephstilwell) is a New York Times best-selling illustrator based in Brooklyn, NY. She loves puns, bright color palettes, hand-lettering, and is most often drawing food. When she isn’t working you will likely find her scribbling in her sketchbook, binge-watching a cooking show, or strolling through Prospect Park.

Steph has designed several items for us over the last few years, including this awesome activity book in our February FINDERS KEEPERS theme. It was full of fun puzzles and a DIY treasure hunt planner!


Sneak Peek #2:

Every September book will feature exclusive reversible dust jacket art by Jessica Gibson!

Jessica (@jessiedrawz) is a kidlit illustrator and proud cat mom. Her whimsical, expressive characters and art are inspired by a love of animals, nature, and picture books.

We absolutely love the way she brought our September characters to life in this project, and we can't wait for you too see it!


Sneak Peek #3:


Every box will include an exclusive piece by artist Jana Curll!

Jana (@jana_curll) is an art director and illustrator based in the rainy west coast of Canada — just a short ferry ride away from OwlCrate HQ! In addition to the most adorable personified veggies and animals you’ve ever seen (seriously, you HAVE to check out her account), Jana’s specialty is bringing locations to life with her maps!

For this particular item, we wanted to bring a number of locations from past OwlCrate Jr books to life and as soon as we found Jana’s portfolio, we knew she was the person to do it. Just wait until you see it!

There is a very good chance that this item will be the first in a new collection… make sure you sign up to get the first edition!
