Next thing you know, we remember there is a new Octonauts book coming out in October. Why write about clown fish when there's a frown fish that needs cheering up? InThe Octonauts and the Frown Fish by Meomi, the underwater crew use activities such as a baking marathon to entice their new friend to smile. Another affordable piece for the adult collector of cute."--Art MoCo

"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
