Dear Dan Yaccarino,

The Fantastic Undersea Life of Jacques CousteauI knew at first glance that I would love The Fantastic Undersea Life of Jacques Cousteau.  I mean, really, what an appealing cover!  Appealing to me, at least.  The text is very simple, great for even young picturebook readers, and the art is so full of eye-catching colors and shapes that I couldn’t look away.  Sometimes the art seemed a little too busy, actually–now and then I had trouble finding Jacques among all the fish and crazy wavy lines.  Even so, the color palette is great, the subject matter is quite worthy, and the whole thing is a treat to read.  Four stars, only held back by the dizzying busy-ness of some of the pages.

Love,

apple
