The Octonauts are back for another adventure in The Octonauts & the Great Ghost Reef by Meomi, the latest tale of the undersea by the team responsible for the design of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic mascots. The crew of eight adorable explorers helps out a turtle and brings an endangered coral reef back to health. The illustrations are delightful and a host of reef dwellers are beautifully presented, as other reef neighbourhoods are also explored. Despite this being designated a picture book for children 4-8, The Octonauts & the Great Ghost Reef is another fine example of top quality illustration that makes a fine book for anyone of any age to pore over.
