This was a great book! My child did not know who Jacques cousteau was but with a little help decided to get the book for a biography report. The reading was challenging but not too difficult. Some french names which we did the best we could with. My child was drawn in and could not put the book down. Great information. The pictures were wonderful and the story inspiring. It had everything from WWII, to underwater dangers to the family man he was. There is just one small issue. I think the portion of the book, although small regarding Cousteau's affair with another woman and the existance of another family could be left out of type of book geared at kids. It is just not necessary and left me with a little unexpecting explaining I was not wanting to do with a 4th grader. Other than that... wonderful story. I also recommend getting/ renting the old Cousteau films by National Geographics to compliment the reading...
