Raise your hand if you’re a fan of the ocean. That thing that covers two-thirds of the Earth’s surface. Keep it raised if you appreciate the ocean for the 70% of the world’s oxygen it provides. Nifty, right?! Okay, you can lower your hand now, so you can continue to scroll.
But how up close and personal do you like your ocean? Do you dream of deep sea adventures? Of diving with sharks? When you watch Jaws, do you root for the shark? Okay, too far — and, don’t watch Jaws.
Or do you prefer to experience marine life from a safe distance, via TV shows, aquariums, and books? Do you sail the hight seas and battle the great kraken, but all in good time to make it downstairs for dinner?
If you said yes to either (and there are no right answers here) or both, then step on closer as we unbox OwlCrate Jr’s September box. Cause the September theme, Legends of the Deep, is guaranteed to have something for you!

Nobody visits Eerie-on-Sea in the winter. Especially not when darkness falls and the wind howls around Maw Rocks and the wreck of the battleship Leviathan, where even now some swear they have seen the unctuous malamander creep…
Herbert Lemon, Lost-and-Founder at the Grand Nautilus Hotel, knows that returning lost things to their rightful owners is not easy – especially when the lost thing is not a thing at all, but a girl. No one knows what happened to Violet Parma’s parents twelve years ago, and when she engages Herbie to help her find them, the pair discover that their disappearance might have something to do with the legendary sea-monster, the Malamander. Eerie-on-Sea has always been a mysteriously chilling place, where strange stories seem to wash up. And it just got stranger…

Blizz Richards and his band of wacky cryptids are back!
Something smells fishy in the underwater kingdom of Atlantis. The merfolk claim the mighty kraken is attacking their city and threatening their safety. They have called yeti Blizz Richards and his team of cryptozoologists to track and capture the beast. But something about their story isn’t holding water…
To find the kraken and get some answers, Blizz and the gang will have to face man-eating sharks, powerful magic crystals, giant crabs, and find a long lost hero in the furthest reaches of the deep.
