Praise

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.”
