My son loves Octonauts, so I was excited to get a book but it is a weird storyline, not like the tv show at all and doesn't really talk about marine life as they do on the tv show. I would look for different Octonaut titles, not a fan of this one.

This book has gorgeous illustrations and my 2 year old octonauts fan definitely enjoyed it. My only complaint is that the animals that are featured are made up - I would have preferred they used real sea creatures like in the episodes.

My family has been an Octonaut fan for a while now. We adore the show and have collected the fisher price sets. This was our first Octonaut book purchase. The book is a work of art. The story is entertaining with a moral. The pictures are breath taking.see moreof the reviewer's review
