What would you do if the stories you imagined leapt off the page and came true in your world?

OwlCrate Jr's July 2022 JUMP OFF THE PAGE box was all about stories that quite literally leap off the page, from Inkheart to Nevermoor to Kiki Kallira. In the July featured book, our main character discovers a peculiar power: the stories they write come true. With a pinch of magic and a dash of mystery, it's the perfect summer read!

Below you'll find our July 2022 monthly magazine with an interview with our featured author, instructions for a pop-up book activity, and more!

Scroll down to check out this magazine, or download the complete magazine HERE.

Spoilers ahead!


Is the unicorn dreaming of the girl, or is the girl dreaming of the unicorn? As always, Melanie Demmer has crafted an enchanting image that tells a story with no words at all. If only we could all jump into this fantastical world!
