More praise for the Octonauts

"March 2007: Best Buy - The Octonauts has gained an international cult following for its beautifully rendered and vibrant illustrations (and refreshingly sassy characters)."
- Vancouver Magazine

"I'm considering making friends with people who have kids, just so I have an excuse to buy, like, a zillion copies."
- Eve Batey, San Francisco Chronicle

"While it appears as a deceptively cute children's book...it turns out...to 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

Peso "The colourful depiction of underwater scenery and various corners of the Earth would appeal to the imagination and adventurous spirit of the young reader."
- CM Magazine

"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."
- Midwest Book Review


Meomi "As I've mentioned in the past, 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."

"The Octonauts: And the Only Lonely Monster has become a new favorite here...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."

"Another valuable lesson the book makes is that of critical reading: the digitally created cartoons are great fun, the gang of friendly pets brims with energy, the text is full of wit."
- SFist
