Picture book-style biographies are my new favorite things. They tend to be--or should I say, the good ones are--focused on a single aspect of the life of the individual, with hints about other things they did. This book focuses on Jacques Cousteaus'fascination, exploration of, and filming of the sea. The illustrations are well-done and not overdone, beautiful in a childlike way. The text is informative, but it reads like a story, not like a textbook.
