Book Description

Oct. 1 2009 Octonauts, The
The books that launched the hit cartoon!

"I've had the pleasure of reviewing all of the books in Meomi's wonderful 'Octonauts' series, which are published by Immedium. I have to say, they just keep getting better and better, and the newest, The Octonauts & the Great Ghost Reef is probably my favorite yet. Not only are the illustrations so cute I want to hang them on my walls, but the story is great, and it's educational... Every page is filled with the cutest illustrations, featuring Meomi's signature characters!" – Tokyo Bunnie

"The eight cuddly underwater explorers from The Octonauts and the Sea of Shade (2007) take a vacation to the Great Reef City only to discover the wondrous reef ecosystem has become bereft of both life and color. They learn that coral is actually made up of thousands of little creatures, and the buildings built on top of the reef have strangled them of sunlight. Even if children don’t quite respond to the gentle socio-environmental message of learning to live in harmony with one’s surroundings, the anime-inspired artwork and oodles of minute details bubbling around each page will have them deeply immersed in the fantastical undersea world." -American Library Association, Booklist

This is the original book series that launched the animated TV show, which is now popular worldwide and broadcast on the Disney Channel in the USA. Discover the creative and fun stories where it all began!

In their fourth adventure, the Octonauts travel to a large reef city where they discover this bustling destination has turned into a ghost town! The once colorful coral has turned an eerie white and homes lay empty. So the crew visit different reef 'neighborhoods' from mangrove  forests to seagrass meadows, searching for clues. Can they solve the mystery of the great ghost reef?

“For many here at COLOURlovers, the illustrations and color compositions found in this brilliant series have continually been a source of inspiration, and The Octonauts and the Great Ghost Reef is no exception.” – Colour Lovers

“The illustrations are delightful and a host of reef dwellers are beautifully presented, as other reef neighbourhoods are also explored. Despite this being designated a picture book for children 4-8, The Octonauts & the Great Ghost Reef is another fine example of top quality illustration that makes a fine book for anyone of any age to pore over.” - ArtMoCo

"Kids should be drawn in by the zippy graphics and comprehend the message about conservation." - Publishers Weekly

“The Octonauts are Diesel Oakland's favorite team of underwater animal explorers. Cute, colorful, imaginative, and action-packed, their exploits appear in four volumes...Their mission? To investigate the mysteries of the deep and to help their fellow creatures. Kids will love the fact that The Octonauts have their own unique personalities, a deep sea workstation in which they live and play, and jobs just like real scientist-explorers. Adults will appreciate the cool graphics and quirky humor. And both will look forward to the vibrant illustrations and little visual details that make each adventure worth returning to again and again.” - Colin Waters, Diesel Bookstore, Oakland, CA

Product Description


"The parallels that the adult reader can make between fact and fiction, environmental damage and care, are the same subtleties that teach children about relationships and responsibility among habitats. Meomi has created a fun group of loveable characters that take the young reader on an adventure through nature and a reef habitat...I would recommend this resource for any child learning about the environment including oceans and coral reefs." - Resource Links

“The Octonauts are a group of eight unabashedly adorable (but somehow impeccably brave) animal pals who scour the high seas for adventure. Exploring giant bodies of water aren't without their risks of course… finding incredible new underwater worlds or attempting to resolve some of the most intriguing mysteries of the watery deep often send the team into conflict with others. Themes such as pride, managing one's emotions, and dealing with loneliness routinely manifest in the book collection, currently numbered at four, published by San Francisco-based Immedium.” – Animation Insider

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Activity for Autistic Children and All Children! May 11 2012
By Athena K. Masuda - Published on
I have found all the Octonauts books to be a wonderful activity for my two autistic boys as well as hugely educational. We read each book and discuss the many wonderful illustrations/situations on each page which gives them a chance to explore many wonderful undersea worlds and creatures with their imaginations. It is rare that any one book can engage their full attention in this way, day after day. Thank you Meomi for such a kind, interesting, and imaginative world for them to explore!

Charming, colorful illustrations help tell this story to 4-8 year-olds in unforgettable style.

Join Captain Barnacles Bear, Peso Penguin Tweak Bunny, Dr. Shellington, Tunip the Vegimal, Sauci Dog, Kwazii Kitten, and Professor Inkling the octopus in their undersea adventure and learn about how to help coral reefs survive and thrive.

3.0 out of 5 stars My Kids Love It Oct. 8 2012
By S.K.S. - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My kids LOVE the show Octonauts, so when I saw these were books, I bought 4 of them.

This one didn't seem to follow the show's formula, which threw me off a bit. I was expecting the story to be about a real live creature...and instead it was fantasy based.

Not a problem, just different from what I expected, based on the TV series. The story was unique and the illustrations very cute.

Some of the words might have been over my kids' heads, but they got the essence of the story, which is the important part.

My son feel in love with The Octonauts when the show started to air on Disney. I was so excited when I found out the show was based on books. Now that we have the books in our hands, I'm ecstatic and so is my son. These books are colorful and use a wide range of vocabulary. All four of these books are GREAT!!!
