    " I feel like I have just met the Rachel Carson of the latter part of the 20th century. Interesting format for a biography of Sylvia Earle with illustrations that seem like they are telling a picture book story rather than a life story. I remembering really enjoying Nivola's Orani: My Father's Village for that same sense that there is more story behind the pictures than the text can tell. As is becoming more typical, the Author's Note goes on to tell more about Earle's activism in speaking out for the protection of oceans. Those final two pages seemed aimed at an adult audience and were so full of problems that need to be addressed, that I felt like they deserved their own book. "

    " Wonderful biography of Sylvia Earle. Beautiful illustrations. Consider for Earth Day or study of women in science. Marvelous author's note. "
