Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, February 1, 2009:
“Cousteau’s enduring fascination with the sea comes through clearly, and can’t help sparking similar feelings in readers.”
Review, The New York Times Book Review, May 10, 2009:
"[A] timely gift to the children– and many parents–who are too young to know the adventures of Captain Cousteau and his ship, Calypso."
Review, Chicago Tribune, May 16, 2009:
"Yaccarino's illustrations remind us of all the mysterious undersea beauty Cousteau introduced to so many."
Review, San Francisco Chronicle, April 26, 2009:

Review, School Library Journal, March 2009:
