Overview

Jim Curious portrays the fantastical story of a young boy and his thrilling trip to the bottom of the sea in an old-fashioned diving suit. But there are no words telling his tale—only intricately illustrated images in exceptional 3-D. On his journey, Jim initially passes the garbage tossed into the waters by land-dwellers, but soon he goes deeper and deeper, immersing himself in the wonders of the waters. He encounters sea creatures large and small, a sunken pirate ship, and even the rem­nant of what seems to be Atlantis, before coming upon a mysterious force at the bottom that turns everything on its head.

STARRED REVIEWS
"Who needs 3D IMAX technology? Originally published in France, this near-wordless picture book ensures an incredible journey without ever leaving the sofa."
Publishers Weekly, starred review

"In this wordless picture book–esque graphic novel, Picard gets to the heart of visual storytelling with a beautifully illustrated 3-D deep sea adventure."
School Library Journal, starred review

"Here’s a masterful triple threat—wordless book, comics-style book, 3-D book—that successfully parries all charges of gimmickry."
The Bulletin of The Center for Children’s Books, starred review

"The lush, expressive black-and-white, full-page illustrations in this wordless graphic novel would be thrilling enough on their own, but French graphic designer Picard has rendered them in glorious, artful 3-D. When Jim slips beneath the surface of the water, the pictures pop off the page, giving a lovely sense of depth to his deep sea dive."
Booklist

"A thoroughly immersive outing."
