About Owl Crate Jr.
What Andrew loved the most about OwlCrate Jr. is that each month the box has a specific theme, one that kids in his age range would absolutely go nuts over! This month’s theme was parallel worlds.
Every subscription box includes a new release book, perfect for middle grades, as well as a variety of goodies that fit with the theme. The box also includes exclusive treats from the featured author. The creators of Owl Crate Jr were very careful in the curating of each box so that readers are instinctively led to explore and think about the topic on a deeper level.

The Starspun Web by Sinead O’Hart
Goodreads Book Description: All her life, Tess has lived at Miss Ackerbee’s orphanage with her friends and her pet tarantula, Violet. But one day, a mysterious man named Mr. Cleat shows up and whisks Tess away to live with him. Before Tess leaves, Miss Ackerbee gives her a strange lens, and makes an even stranger admission: that Tess can travel to parallel worlds, and has been able to do so since she was found as a baby. Now, with her newfound abilities and the mysterious lens in tow, Tess must navigate life with Mr. Cleat and his nefarious housekeeper, who seem to be up to more than they let on.
As Tess learns about the lens and its role in transporting her to other worlds, she discovers that behind Mr. Cleat’s oily smiles is a darker intention: one that could bring the world to its feet. Can Tess keep her secret from Mr. Cleat, and figure out what he’s up to? And what if the lens falls into the wrong hands? With the help of Violet and her friends from the orphanage, Tess can finally discover the truth about Mr. Cleat and, more importantly, herself.
