Product Description


"Critter lovers, young and old alike, will fall in love with Meomi's new book series based on the voyages of their popular gang of explorers...sure to charm its way to the inner child in all of us.”—Venus Zine

"The characters are cuddly and quirky, and the moral of the story is as good as a hug from a dear one saying I love you for the individual you are.' We hope that's a joy you'll never outgrow." - Rivet Magazine

"...we can't get enough of their illustrations and highly recommend this 36 page sea thriller for your kids."
- PaperArts

"While it appears as a deceptively cute children's turns possess the power to destroy the universe if it's not handled properly...The Octonauts is so devastating, it makes The Tribbles Pandemic look about as scary as a pom pom-tipped pen." - DaddyTypes

“I usually hate 'cuteness' but this book breaks through to even my cold dead heart...Come on, we're talking about 'a valiant polar bear, daredevil kitten, and big-hearted penguin.'... I'm considering making friends with people who have kids, just so I have an excuse to buy, like, a zillion copies.” — SFGate, San Francisco Chronicle

This is first of the original books that inspired the TV show and it differs slightly to what you get on the show. It is still wonderful, however. Ours is a paperback copy.

The resident crew of the Octopod awakens to what appears to be an attack. It is a creature who has mistaken the Octopod as one of its kind, and for whom it is searching. The Octonauts are just the team to help him find what he's looking for. There begins their adventure through the oceans of the Earth.

I love how the text and illustrations lie in the same orientation as the compass during the search for the creature's species. Rotating the book, flicking pages back and forth adds interest.

The journey is adventurous and fun, and provides ample opportunity to lower or raise your voice as you exclaim, or pretend-cry as you read to your little audience.

During the ocean quest there is so much visual detail that you have an opportunity to make up your own search-and-find of sea creatures. Can you find me a walrus, a killer whale, an igloo; how many viking hats can you count? How many tee-pees can you see? (yes, tee-pees).

The message at the end has a beautiful double meaning that is good for discussion.

Everything about this book is beautiful. The colour illustrations are gorgeous throughout. They have so much detail that you miss some the first time, and pick them up on the second and subsequent readings. There are fictional sea creatures as well as real ones (the TV show focuses on real sea creatures only). And there is a clever play on words in the illustrations that older readers appreciate.

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

Format: Hardcover
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.

We love the octonauts books--there are so many little things to look at on each page-lots of fun! Our three year old will flip through it over and over before bed even after we've read it! Perfect for any octonaut fan.

A lot for the kids to consider: monsters, loneliness, their responsibilities for lonely monsters, plus an around the world tour.
