About the Author:

When I was a little girl I had some difficulties learning how to read so my father did a survey of what subjects interested me. Well, it turned out I was interested in SHARKS. So, my father bought a number of Jacques Cousteau books. Every night after dinner my father would dutifully sit with me and work on my reading. When we came up against a French word my father would curse and quickly turn the page. Thank you dad for spending the time to help me with my reading.

Years later, when Jacques Cousteau came to Vancouver, I knew people who allegedly knew the troublesome teenagers who absconded with his beloved Zodiac. Reportedly, Cousteau went on live TV and stated that he had traveled the world and never had his Zodiac stolen until he had the misfortune of visiting Vancouver Canada.
