I am totally charmed by the illustrations and story line of this sequel to The Octonauts and The Only Lonely Monster. This book is titled The Octonauts and The Sea of Shade and I receieved a copy of it recently from the publisher to see what my thoughts were. Both are by Meomi and filled with adorable Japanese style cuties that have undersea adventures. For some reason the scenes remind me of the Teletubbies and the surreal fantasy world that they live in. The Octonauts and their adventures will be easily loved by little ones but I find the illustrations are very inspiring for an adult too.
Aren't they cute? I love the black contrast. If you fall in love with these little guys like I have check here for coloring pages and desktops to download. Of course both books would be perfect holiday gifts too :)
