"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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Having several options I did choose this one due to the description. I do get that is a used children book, but the description should be closer to the actual condition.
As for the book, very enjoyable story not seen on the TV show. My boys (4 & 2yrs.) did like it and request a re-read often.
A big hit with any child from age 2-5 male or female and a real find for us.
We have 3 of the original books and they are firm favourites for bedtime stories. The pictures are very detailed and interesting, it really holds their attention while we read the story and they ask lots of questions. The books are imaginative and at the same time teach the important lessons usually found in children's books (be nice to each other, it's fine to be different etc).
The Octonauts are preparing to holiday in the Great Reef City, built on coral, when a look out of their Octopod reveals the reef is a ghost-town and bleached instead of colourful and thriving with sea life... The Octonauts enter the City to investigate.
The last remaining occupant - a wise, old turtle, tells the Octonauts how the ghost town developed. Four of the Octonauts help him to relocate his home and they tour through the tropics to find him a suitable new location. In this book the Octonauts teach the kids the importance of the relationship between the sea animals, plants and animal habitats.
This is the Octonauts so there is an environmental protection message in all 4 original books, but the message is strongest in this one. There is no subtle double meaning. This one is direct, yet it is delivered gently and with colourful, lovely characters.
The illustrations are gorgeous throughout the book and they are packed with details you may miss the first time, and pick up on the second and subsequent readings. The colours are so pretty and bright, and there is a clever play on words in the illustrations that older readers appreciate. There is a sharp contrast between the healthy environment and the Ghost Reef.
Once again, the book required rotation several times to view the illustrations and text, and this added interest.
The “end paper” (blue portraits of the Octonauts) at the front of the book differs to the end paper at the back of the book. I love that attention to little details.
Did you see the special message at the bottom of the Dedication page?
This book is a winner in our home.
