In the graphic novel Journey Under the Arctic, aquanaut and conservationist Fabien Cousteau sets off on an adventure with junior explorers Rocco and Olivia. They’re searching for the rare Dumbo octopus. Along the way, they discover other fascinating creatures. They also meet local Inuit people and learn how everyday actions contribute to climate change.

Cousteau, grandson of famed oceanographer Jacques Cousteau, has been an explorer himself since age 7. He helped create the book to instill a love of nature in young people. What they love, they’ll protect, he told TFK Kid Reporter Henry Carroll. “We need to treat our planet the way we treat ourselves.”
