Comments for The Octonauts and the Frown Fish

The Octonauts and the Frown Fish: 12/25/10

 cover art (Link goes to Powells)The Octonauts and the Frown Fish is the third in the series by Meomi. In this one, the Octonauts come across a fish with a giant frown. They want to help to cheer the fish up.

They take the fish around to the best under the sea entertainment spots. Still the fish frowns. If anything, the fish's frown gets bigger! They even try building an exosuit for the fish so he can join them out of the water.

The Octonauts books are wonderful first and foremost for their adorable but highly detailed illustrations. Next the stories themselves are delightful. Best of all, the guest star for the book (in this case, the Frown Fish) is always a real thing. The Frown Fish is a type of catfish (synodontis Nigriventris).

After my son reads an Octonaut book, he and I look up the featured animal together. I've included the link for the page where we read up about the Frown Fish. I'm not going to tell you what makes him so special to avoid spoiling the story.

We checked the book out from the library.
