"Meomi's character design is terrific. But their books, especially their first book, are more than that...I love it, and more importantly, my son loves it and asks for it at bedtime.” - Super Punch

"The Octonauts: And the Only Lonely Monster has become a new favorite here. The story follows the path of the adorable, underwater Octonauts who come under attack from a sad, lonely monster and later help the creature find others like it under the sea. A smarter person would say there's a perfect allegory buried beneath the pages — something about how bullies have fears like everyone else and how wonderful it is to be unique. But I always find myself just getting lost in the illustrations by team Meomi....It's great to find a book that appeals to both kids and adults — even if the appeal is for different reasons....In other words, these are the best. children's book. animals. ever. I can't get enough of them...I can read this book for hours — and have.” - SFGate.com
