and The Sea of Shade

ISBN: 978-1-59702-010-7, 11 x 8

"I can now report to you that The Octonauts & the Sea of Shade is just as charming, beautiful, funny, and adorable as the first Octonauts book. I highly recommend this to children and adults alike - especialy if those adults love intoxicating graphics and mysterious underwater worlds."
- Treehouse Jukebox

The Octonauts are cute undersea explorers in search of adventure and fun! From their base "the Octopod", these eight animals are always ready to embark on a new exciting voyage.

In their second amazing episode, the crew realizes all their shadows in the ocean have disappeared! The brave team must make the incredible journey to the mysterious Sea of Shade. Once there, can the Octonauts convince the proud Shade King to let all the shadows go? Stay tuned to find out!

More praise for the Octonauts

"The crisply drafted pages bloom with fascinating detail: every tree, shadow, rock, and animal has an endearing, individual personality. While the story might be too cute for some, the book itself is a lush visual treat."
- Utne Reader

"The combination of a well-produced hardcover and amazing artwork prompted me to dig deeper into the children's book realm where I discovered quite a few gems...And after some recent online surfing, I think I have a new kids series to add to my ever-growing shelf..."
- Indie Pulp

"This book will entertain children and adults of all ages. I really wish that I were a child again because the books are better than ever! Go and Read It!"
- Mixed Plate

"Exploring the world is almost synonymous with exploring colour...On top of that, the characters in the book are extremely loveable. With their gently-coloured designs and their exciteable curiosity, there’s no doubt that children won’t be the only ones falling in love with them, and hoping for more adventures to come."
- Colour Lovers

"It's the myriad fanciful details in the intricate undersea illustrations that will attract kids, who may also have a bit of fun with the text's scientific-sounding language"
- ALA Booklist


Meomi "order The Octonauts and the Sea of Shade today - your kids will love you for it."
- Kaliber10k

"!!!I I always feel very young when I use exclamations, but oh well. It looks fantastic. I have a lot of friends who are very into what Immedium's doing--so not only do you have the kids on your side, but 30+ yr old graphic designers."
- Nicole Harvey, Asian Art Museum of San Francisco

"I am always in search of children's books that are slightly offbeat and unique. It keeps things interesting for the grownups and the kids…The illustrations in Octonauts are vibrant and detailed. They are the kind of illustrations that the kids stare at for a while, so they can find all the intricate story and character details that are not explained in the text."
- MamaLibrarian

"It may be a picture book, but the pictures are what it is all about. We'll say right now that cute is a word that is probably impossible to avoid using in reference to the gang of 7 animals and one vegimal (part vegetable, part animal) who have underwater adventures…The illustrations are simply amazing: colourful digital cartoons that have the mark of becoming classics. Each page is chock full of details to pore over."
