Reviews

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, February 1, 2009:
"Cousteau's enduring fascination with the sea comes through clearly, and can't help sparking similar feelings in readers." Review, The New York Times Book Review, May 10, 2009:
"[A] timely gift to the children- and many parents-who are too young to know the adventures of Captain Cousteau and his ship, Calypso." Review, Chicago Tribune, May 16, 2009:
"Yaccarino's illustrations remind us of all the mysterious undersea beauty Cousteau introduced to so many." Review, San Francisco Chronicle, April 26, 2009:
"With a deft hand, Yaccarino lays the foundation for an extraordinary life." Review, The Boston Globe, March 22, 2009:
"Exquisitely written and well-researched." Review, School Library Journal, March 2009:
"Yaccarino deftly provides information about important events in Cousteau's life while conveying the excitement and wonder that the ocean explorer experienced."

Gr 1-4-Bold colors and abstract patterns emphasize Cousteau's energetic quest to invent ways to explore the ocean, document what he saw, and share his discoveries with others. Brief quotations from Cousteau complement Yaccarino's simple text. Words are secondary to the layered illustrations, which reveal the vitality of ocean life. (c) Copyright 2013.
