Book Description

"Meomi's character design is terrific. But their books, especially their first book, are more than that... I love it, and more importantly, my son loves it and asks for it at bedtime." - Super Punch

" The Octonauts: And the Only Lonely Monster has become a new favorite here. The story follows the path of the adorable, underwater Octonauts who come under attack from a sad, lonely monster and later help the creature find others like it under the sea. A smarter person would say there's a perfect allegory buried beneath the pages - something about how bullies have fears like everyone else and how wonderful it is to be unique. But I always find myself just getting lost in the illustrations by team Meomi... .It's great to find a book that appeals to both kids and adults - even if the appeal is for different reasons... .In other words, these are the best. children's book. animals. ever. I can't get enough of them... I can read this book for hours - and have." -

4.0 out of 5 stars The Octonauts and the Only Lonely Monster Aug. 29 2011
By AWinMac
The Octonauts series are very inventive, entertaining and colourful stories full of endearing characters. The Only Lonely Monster is a great little book about accepting difference, helping others and creating friendships despite some initial misunderstanding. I have been reading my daughter these books since she was three years old. She is five now and we still re-read them over and over. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderfully imaginative and enchanting tale. Feb. 3 2007
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
The Octonauts & the Only Lonely Monster is the debut picturebook story about the Octonauts, eight talented animals who seek undersea adventure, roaming the ocean from their "Octopod" base. The stunning, stylized color illustrations emphasizing simplicity, curves, and a "big head/small eye" anthropomorphic look gives Octonauts a unique appearance, while the story tells of their encounter with a lonely sea monster leading to an important lesson about the values of friendship and individuality. A wonderfully imaginative and enchanting tale.

I don't know if anyone has looked for octonauts toys, but they are expensive. So when I saw these books, I was excited. My kids love watching Octonauts on tv and they love reading books. I am so happy with these books. They are a little lengthy, but definitly worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pixar like, in that it appeals to adults as much as kids March 24 2007
By pdX - Published on
Like Pixar films, this book offers as much for adults as it does for kids. First off, it's beautifully designed with fun little details that you notice over time. Anyone interested in old school book illustrators (Maurice Sendak, Ezra J Keats) will appreciate how closely knit the story is to it's lush imagery. This works really well.

The basic story is about this group of unique critters in an underwater world who wake one morning to find their submarine is under attack. When they go out to explore, they find an enormous octopus-like creature who took a liking to their submarine (which looked a lot like itself and is even called an octopod!). The octopus monster was as so lonely for companionship that it just hugs their little submarine. And that begins their adventure: the cast of critters head off with the big octopus monster to help it search for another of it's kind.

It's an adorable and imaginative story about friendship, told in a style that kids and adults will love.
