The cast of colorful characters are on another deep blue adventure, this time to help out the frown fish have a little fun. Each page is a treat for any color lover as the book is full of color cuteness of soft yet vibrant palettes, and the wonderful compositions and styling we've come to expect from the Meomi team's illustrations. - Colour Lovers The Octonauts are a crew of eight adorable undersea explorers. I fell in love with all of them, and I don t think I could pick a favorite animal. In The Octonauts and the Frown Fish, the crew finds a fish that frowns all the time. They don t know why the fish frowns because they don t speak 'Frownese.' The Octonauts are determined to cheer the fish up. This book elicited the aww, that s cute reaction many times. The artwork is so adorable, and the story is simple but sweet. I hope the Frown Fish becomes a recurring character. I don t know if I d describe this as a children s book because adults can enjoy it as well. The artwork alone is worth the price of the book. I would recommend it for anyone with kids or anyone who is a kid at heart. - Supah Cute"
