Once upon a time in France, a baby was born under the summer sun. His parents named him Jacques. As he grew, Jacques fell in love with the sea. He dreamed of breathing beneath the waves and swimming as gracefully as a fish. In fact, he longed to become a manfish. Jacques Cousteau grew up to become a champion of the seas and one of the best-known oceanographers in the world. In this lovely biography, now in paperback, poetic text and gorgeous paintings come together to create a portrait of Cousteau that is as magical as it is inspiring.

About the Author

Jennifer Berne is the author of the acclaimed Manfish, about Jacques Cousteau, and spends her time writing children's books about the subjects she loves most - our amazing universe and the people who are passionate about it. She lives in Copake, New York.

Jacques Cassabois aime les personnages qui resistent, capables de secouer l'ordre des choses, de lever les energies de chacun, d'entrainer derriere eux, riches d'ampleur, porte-paroles des plus hautes qualites de l'homme et dont les actes ecrivent des epopees qui atteignent au mythe. C'est ainsi qu'il a frequente Sindbad le marin, Gilgamesh le Sumerien, Tristan et Iseut, la lumineuse Antigone, chevauche aux cotes de Jeanne d'Arc, accompagne les troupes d'enfants de 1212, en route pour delivrer Jerusalem et partage La colere des Herissons qui s'opposent de toutes leurs forces aux puissants qui compromettent l'avenir.
