Format: Paperback
This is book two of the original books that inspired the TV show and it differs to what you get on the show. This one is based more in fantasy. There are real and fictional sea creatures, and fictional places including the Sea of Shade.

The resident crew of the Octopod is disturbed by the sudden disappearance of shadows. The intrepid crew begins a quest to the hidden realm of the Sea of Shade to beg an audience before the Shade King and unearth the mystery.

The story is adventurous and fun. As the Octonauts travel on their perilous journey, we rotate the book several times and this adds interest.

The visual contrast between the vibrant, pretty colours of the Octonauts and the gathering dark shadows is striking. The illustrations are gorgeous throughout. They are packed with details and you miss some the first time, but pick them up on the second and subsequent readings.

And there is a clever play on words in the illustrations that older readers appreciate. I loved seeing the tent with old-fashioned shadow puppetry.

Oh, and look at the "end paper" (blue portraits of the Octonauts) at the front of the book and compare it to the end paper at the back of the book. I love that attention to little details.

I like Captain Barnacle's direct approach: see a problem with someone? Immediately ask them what is going on, and you might be able to resolve the issues.

My kids enjoyed deciphering the Shade King's message: the shadows as a parallel with quiet and supportive friends or family we take for granted... or the environment generally, including the Oceans, that people abuse with thoughtless littering and chemical wastes.

Did you see the special message at the bottom of the Dedication page? This book is a winner in our home.

Octonauts books and T.V. episodes are colourful and appealing to young children. The various animals and vegimals work as a team to protect and help the ocean creatures. They each have special jobs and talents in order to do this. The adventures are exciting but not scary. Children learn about creatures in the sea and get a sense of how to co-operate with others, while respecting and appreciating their differences.

The artwork in the book is great but if your child is a fan of the show, it is NOT the same format. No creature report etc..
