The Aquanaut

by Dan Santat Year Published: 2022


My love for Dan Santat has been well-documented here at the Book Pick of the Week.  As the illustrator of over 100 books, his style brings animals and humans to life and draws you in every. single. time. For the first time in eleven years, Mr. Santat has written his own graphic novel, The Aquanaut. The book follows two families- one human, and one aquatic - as they try to figure out their place in the world. Gorgeously, stunningly, meticulously illustrated, The Aquanaut will make you want to read it over and over again to pick up all the details you missed. More suitable for grades three and up as it has a Pixar-level intro before even the title page, this book is why graphic novels are a great medium for readers of all levels. We have two copies in the LC - check them out today!
