Jacques succeeded in his quest when he created the world's first aqualung. With a tank of air on his back Jacques was able to explore underwater worlds for hours, and best of all he took a camera with him so that he could show the world what he saw beneath the waves. This beautifully written and stunningly illustrated title is a stellar biographical picture book.
In her text the author captures Jacques Cousteau's dreams and hopes.
She shows readers how the little boy became the man who brought the wonders of the world's oceans into people's living rooms with his films. Eric Puybaret's illustrations perfectly capture the beauty of underwater landscapes, and readers will quickly wish that they too could take a journey to places where whales glide by and seaweeds wave.

Manfish: The Story of Jacques Costeau
All Rights Reserved. Purchase on. In order to share his love of the ocean, says Berne, he designed and built the aqualung—an invention that became the prototype for all scuba-diving oxygen tanks—and a clear, water-tight case for his video camera. When he discovered that industry was having a negative effect on the oceans of the world, Cousteau became one of the early environmentalists.
Ending on this note, she makes a statement that reflects the spirit of the explorer.
His paintings reflect the whimsical, dream-like text, and his knowledge of all things aquatic. Puybaret is a diver himself, and he has strived to accurately portray the world beneath the waves. Most importantly, Puybaret has a distinctive style that is easy to drift into, easy on the eyes.
