The Adventures Of Blue Ocean Bob Book Review

In The Adventures of Blue Ocean Bob (Vol.1): Blue Ocean Bob Discovers His Purpose (illustrated by Aleksandra Beaucher), Brooks Olbrys, a Manhattan lawyer and investment banker, introduces us to Blue Ocean Bob, a courageous island boy who embarks upon a quest to discover his purpose and much more. Accompanied by Xena, an overly cautious hummingbird, Bob asks the sea creatures to share their secrets to contentment with him. With the help of Al the dolphin and Doc, an elderly turtle, Bob discovers his passion and realizes his purpose to protect the sea and all life within it.

In later volumes in this rhyming picture book series, Blue Ocean Bob learns about the importance of vision, goals, attitude, persistence, confidence, communication, gratitude, and responsibility in carrying out his duties on the Island of Roses. In the final volume, Blue Ocean Bob learns the meaning of success - progressively becoming the marine biologist he yearns to be.

Bob Proctor, personal development expert and best-selling author of You Were Born Rich writes: "Brooks Olbrys has done a remarkable job. Blue Ocean Bob provides young minds with positive precepts and powerful lessons that will serve them for the rest of their lives."

Brian Biro, author of Beyond Success writes: "Your children will love these delightful stories and the simple but profound principles they reveal will be with them for a lifetime!"

Blue Ocean Bob Discovers His Purpose, a companion memory card game, an online memory game, and more information on the series are available at
