Immedium's original four books inspired the popular animated television series that is broadcast on Disney Junior and Netflix and in more than 100 countries around the globe.

"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... Every page is filled with the cutest illustrations, featuring Meomi's signature characters!"

Review Quotes




"The parallels that the adult reader can make between fact and fiction, environmental damage and care, are the same subtleties that teach children about relationships and responsibility among habitats. Meomi has created a fun group of loveable characters that take the young reader on an adventure through nature and a reef habitat...I would recommend this resource for any child learning about the environment including oceans and coral reefs." - Resource Links

"The Octonauts are a group of eight unabashedly adorable (but somehow impeccably brave) animal pals who scour the high seas for adventure. Exploring giant bodies of water aren't without their risks of course... finding incredible new underwater worlds or attempting to resolve some of the most intriguing mysteries of the watery deep often send the team into conflict with others. Themes such as pride, managing one's emotions, and dealing with loneliness routinely manifest in the book collection, currently numbered at four, published by San Francisco-based Immedium." - Animation Insider

"Beautifully illustrated, the colors are vivid and the scenes resplendent. Every page has something to draw the eye, yet is filled to the brim with activity. It's a very attractive read. The book does a lot to educate readers about the various creatures and their ocean habitats, labeling them alongside their images. The underlying social and environmental message - primarily focused on the responsibility to care for your surroundings - is presented in a subtle yet effective way. One part mystery, one part adventure, one part gorgeous, this book will likely be a hit with ages 4-8 and beyond." - vegbooks

"the book engages readers through its charming visual appeal! ....[it tells] an interesting story which teaches readers a valuable lesson about caring for the environment.... Recommended." - CM magazine

"For many here at COLOURlovers, the illustrations and color compositions found in this brilliant series have continually been a source of inspiration, and The Octonauts and the Great Ghost Reef is no exception." - Colour Lovers

"The illustrations are delightful and a host of reef dwellers are beautifully presented, as other reef neighbourhoods are also explored. Despite this being designated a picture book for children 4-8, The Octonauts & the Great Ghost Reef is another fine example of top quality illustration that makes a fine book for anyone of any age to pore over." - ArtMoCo

"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

My 4 year old loves this story. He wanted to read it with me 3 times the first day it arrived in the mail. We both learned a lot about coral.
