The Fantastic Undersea Life of Jacques Cousteau
By Dan Yaccarino
Jacques Cousteau—inventor, explorer, filmmaker and environmentalist—was dedicated to protecting the undersea world. Bold and colorful illustrations by Dan Yaccarino capture Cousteau's energy and charm as well as the beauty of the oceans he loved. Of particular interest are Cousteau’s co‑development of the Aqua‑Lung and his many discoveries of a largely unknown undersea world. His desire to record his ocean exploration led to innovations in underwater photography used in his films and television programs, which shared his findings with the world. As pollution in the oceans began to affect sea life, Cousteau founded the Cousteau Society with the mission to protect the beauty and life of the oceans.
Brightly colored bubbles throughout the book contain quotations from Cousteau. Found at the book's end are a list of important events from his life, and sources to learn more about his invaluable contributions to ocean conservation.Check Availability
