"The original Octonauts books have inspired a popular animated television series broadcast worldwide.
In their fourth adventure, the Octonauts travel to a large reef city. When they arrive, they discover that the once bustling waters have turned into a ghost town! The colorful coral has turned an eerie white and buildings lay empty and crumbling.
The Octonauts explore the different reef ‘neighborhoods’, from mangrove forests to seagrass meadows, to learn about the plants and animals that make up this strange tropical world. Will the crew be able to find clues to solve the mystery of the Great Ghost Reef?
“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. I've selected a few of my favorite images for this post, but pick up the book, because it won't disappoint! Every page is filled with the cutest illustrations, featuring Meomi's signature characters!” – Tokyo Bunnie
“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
“The eight cuddly underwater explorers…take a vacation to the Great Reef City only to discover the wondrous reef ecosystem has become bereft of both life and color…the anime-inspired artwork and oodles of minute details bubbling around each page will have [children] deeply immersed in the fantastical undersea world.” --Ian Chipman , ALA Booklist"
