King of the underwater world!

In this delightful beginning-level biography, author and illustrator Dan Yaccarino introduces readers to the life of Jacques Cousteau – filmmaker, inventor, and world-famous explorer of the planet’s lakes, rivers, and oceans. Young readers will enjoy Yaccarino’s gouache-and-airbrush illustrations, which bubble along with such jaunty energy that Cousteau’s underwater exploits appear not just fascinating but downright fun. From exploring the waters of Antarctica to sampling wine from a 2,000-year-old shipwreck, Captain Cousteau and his shipmates always seem to be having the time of their lives.
Offer this book to a young reader who enjoys adventure stories and maybe you’ll spark a life-long interest in what Jacques Cousteau called “The Silent World.”
