THE OCTONAUTS are a team of eight undersea explorers (including a brainy octopus, a big-hearted penguin and a daredevil kitten) who are always ready for new and exciting adventures. In this third Octonauts storybook, the crew discovers a fish with a giant frown on his face. He looks so glum that he's causing everyone around him to feel down also. Our heroes need to find a way to cheer him up! The Octonauts try music, field trips, miniature golf, and even a baking marathon, but can they make their new friend smile? Created by popular illustration and design team, MEOMI, the Octonauts will excite the imaginations of kids and adults of all ages.
