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...

Praise For…


"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.
