A. New York Times features The Octonauts
With the headline "Meet the Band of TV Animals That's Talking to Preschoolers About Climate," the New York Times' October 6th Arts section spotlighted The Octonauts.

The NYT wrote that the series "is part of a long tradition of children's programs that employ animal characters to teach about the natural world."

"Netflix has released the show in 19 languages and in 190 countries...viewership was among the top 10 children's programs in 44 countries, including the United States, Britain, Australia, France, Spain, South Korea, Colombia and the United Arab Emirates."

Having already licensed our original four storybooks to the UK and South Korea, we expect official Spanish editions soon! Thanks for enjoying our "wave-breaking" storybooks and special box set edition.

B. look out: More Awesome Asian Americans!
Volume 2 arrives this month! More Awesome Asian Americans features 10 trailblazing women and 10 talented men.

This "graphic novel" features 60 fantastic illustrations by artist Juan Calle.

The Color of Success podcast spotlighted our graphic novel Awesome Asian Americans.

Host Dr. Stephanie Wong interviewed co-author Oliver Chin on August 29th. Download and listen to the episode.

C. Pass into Immedium's comics
Immedium's e-books are available through partners like LibraryPass, who recently announced that their ComicsPass service has expanded its distribution into schools and libraries.

"Immedium's The Discovery of Anime & Manga proved popular with younger readers who wanted to learn more about manga itself."

ComicsPass ranked The Discovery of Anime & Manga a Top 10 Title for Children.


Timmy & Tammy's Train of Thought

by Oliver Chin
illustrated by Heath McPherson

"Timmy and Tammy was a perfect fit for us! It is about a sibling set that love to read about trains and play with trains... The illustrations by Health McPherson make me think of I Dream of Jeannie. They are fun, whimsical, cartoonish, 1950's-ish and did I say fun?... Great book and we've reread it multiple times."

Play with your Food

by David Derrick

"Adult readers and children alike will enjoy finding these animals hidden in the illustrations as the story progresses. The story takes on a circular format, as the predator becomes the prey by the end of the book, and the hijinks continue. RECOMMENDED."
