Originally published in: 2008

What it’s about: Legendary marine biologist and filmmaker Jacques Cousteau.

What made me pick it up: As a child I was enamored with Cousteau and hellbent on becoming a marine biologist just like him.

My favorite things: The illustrations in this book are fantastic. It’s a great introduction to Cousteau for younger readers. I especially enjoyed how clearly his curiosity came across on the page. Also, I had forgotten he invented scuba! I’m smitten all over again.

Who it’s great for: Fans of Cousteau. Kids who like animals of all varieties, but especially sea creatures. Anyone brimming with natural curiosity.

Erica’s rating: four-shells
