“The underwater spaces in the [Sea of Shade] are much more creative and fantastic than the cartoon. Some of what is underwater in the book looks like it is really above water, but the pictures are beautiful and the story is so creative. I loved reading the story and seeing more basics of the characters than you get in the television show.” – Crafty Moms Share
“There’s a lot of imagination in the characters and their rescue gadgets (especially the multi-appendaged, mobile Octopod), and kids will happily get on board with how the creative style inspires their own imagination. When they’re tackling a problem, the team members have designated roles and jobs to do, which sends positive messages about individuality and the power of cooperation.” – Common Sense Media
“Meomi presents characters that are both cutesy and beautiful at the same glance. The artwork translates easily to a coloring page, but is also full of enough detail to make each reading a different adventure. In one story there is an Escher-like moment as the team journeys through a series of caverns and cannot tell up from down. My son spots something new each time. There is a touch of whimsy in not only the artwork but also the construction of the books.” – GeekMom, Wired magazine
