The Aquanaut by Dan Santat was a moving, fun graphic novel about marine life and the meaning of family. You meet Sophia, the daughter of Michel who dies in the sinking of vessel that he and his brother were using to research the sea. During this sinking, Paul ends ups surviving and is left to take care of Sophia. Paul is quite busy with his work, leaving Sophia alone a lot. One day an old diving suit appears out of the water. What the people don’t know is that it’s operated by marine animals.
