Everything in the Limited Edition OwlCrate Jr. box!
Art Print. It’s a beautiful art print featuring the lyrics to the song from the book. The design is enchanting and it would make for a nice display on my daughter’s desk.
Pennant. This pennant is something that you can display in your room. It’s cute and it’s somewhat like a celebration of being in the Wundrous Society school! This specific piece is for members of Unit 919.
Book Sleeve. A book sleeve is a must-have, especially when traveling with a book. This one is so adorable! It shows the door to the Unit 919 station!
The fabric is soft and smooth, and it was also well-stitched.
WunSoc Pin. For pin collectors, here’s a Wundrous Society pin and it’s so cute!
This is similar to what the members of the society get when they already passed their trials and already been accepted to the Wundrous Society.
Shower Steamer. There’s also a bath item in the box! It’s a shower steamer, which you can use simply by placing it on the shower floor.
It’s from Hotel Deucalion, the hotel where Morrigan lives. The scent is named Peach Smoke.
It smells really warm and inviting. I can see why the packaging says it evokes sweet memories of summer!
Umbrella. Here’s another useful item in the box, a foldable umbrella!
It came with a carrying sleeve.
Umbrellas (Brolly in the books) are significant items in Nevermoor and they even have an entire transport system that uses umbrellas called the Brolly Rail!
The design depicts events and characters in the book, it’s so enchanting!
The umbrella is manually operated so you have to slide in and out to open and close it.
There’s even an OwlCrate logo on the tie of the umbrella!
Unit 919 Trading Cards. These trading cards make nice collectible items! The box includes Unit 919, so this will be Morrigan’s group.
Here’s everyone from the unit! The front part shows a full-body photo of the characters.
At the back, there is information about each character, like their favorite WunSoc class, interests, etc.
Step Boldly Sticker. Featured on the sticker are Morrigan, Jupiter, and Fenestra. I love the message of this sticker which is also a message from the book: Step Boldly.
This box also comes with a card that has the same illustration as the book cover.
At the back is a personal message from the author, Jessica Townsend, for the OwlCrate Jr. readers!
Morrigan battles a new evil as a strange, frightening illness takes hold of Nevermoor in this captivating and heart-pounding third book of the instant New York Times bestselling series.
Morrigan Crow and her friends have survived their first year as proud scholars of the elite Wundrous Society, helped bring down the nefarious Ghastly Market, and proven themselves loyal to Unit 919. Now Morrigan faces a new, exciting challenge: to master the mysterious Wretched Arts, and control the power that threatens to consume her.
But a strange and frightening illness has taken hold of Nevermoor, turning infected Wunimals into mindless, vicious Unnimals on the hunt. As victims of the Hollowpox multiply, panic spreads. And with the city she loves in a state of fear, Morrigan quickly realizes it’s up to her to find a cure for the Hollowpox, even if it will put her — and everyone in Nevermoor — in more danger than she ever imagined.
The back of the book shows us a snippet. There are also some reviews about the book.
The inside flap of the dust jacket has a brief synopsis of the story.
It’s a signed book!
This book is the third installment to the Nevermoor series and it centers around a mystery illness taking over the Wunimals.
This book couldn’t have come at a better time because I think this relates to the current situation we are currently dealing with. I like how the author was able to write about these societal issues in a way that kids will be able to easily understand. I liked the ending, it gives the readers hope as well!
Let me start by saying that this box is wonderful! My daughter is happy that the items are actually related to the books and not just a random item with illustrations from the book. Her favorite is the umbrella because of its significance to the story, especially if you’ve read the first one (Nevermoor). My daughter loves reading and this story is exciting because it’s fast-paced, full of adventure, and it tackles issues that are relatable in real life. The author really put her mind to this wonderfully written book and I’m super happy that OwlCrate Jr. featured it in this limited edition box! This Hollowpox-themed box is worth every penny and my daughter was thrilled with the surprise, as she’d already asked me to get this book!
