Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Octonauts Annual 2012 (Hardcover)
Lieutenant Kwazi, Captain Barnacles and Medic Peso are swimming right towards you on the front cover; enough to entice any child to open the pages... especially a dedicated fan! The front cover has a slightly padded feel. The back cover shows individual pictures of the team with their names underneath. Quality matt pages with beautiful illustrations and colours throughout, just like the animations.
Hardback gloss cover. Width approx just over 22cm Height approx 29.5cm Depth approx 1cm.
The first page has a special 'This Octonauts Annual belongs to.......' space for the owner to write their name. Contents...

Octonauts product advertising page... Forewarned is forearmed!
There is the opportunity to take the pages further and go create something to play with, fuelling imagination and giving a huge sense of achievement. The stories have appeared on TV many times but this gives familiarity to aide reading and build confidence; however, a brand new one would have been the icing on the cake! The best annual I've ever seen, full of facts and interesting things to do. Octastic!
Our copy had off set printing errors on several pages. Perhaps best order allowing time to sort out a replacement should you need to, avoiding disappointment. Amazon responded promptly.
