He lives in Weybridge, Vermont.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-8–A seven-day father-daughter vacation on a remote Bahamian island is chronicled in clear language and full-color, glossy photographs with vivid colors and details. Suzanna wants to become a certified scuba diver and swim with the sharks. Along the way her father, the author, uses her story to describe how a person becomes certified. Readers follow the 12-year-old from her first dive in a pool to her dive with 17 sharks. The history and superstitions of Andros are also explored as the Louries sightsee when they are not in the water. The language and style add to the feeling that this is a personal travel journal. Suzanna's thoughts supplement her father's journal. Students interested in scuba diving will be enthralled by the book and wish they could go on such a vacation. Shark enthusiasts will also enjoy reading about the girl's experiences with these animals.–Christine Markley, Washington Elementary School, Barto, PA
