A bright, science-minded boy goes to the beach equipped to collect and examine flotsam - anything floating that has been washed ashore. Bottles, lost toys, small objects of every description are among his usual finds. But there's no way he could have prepared for one particular discovery: a barnacle-encrusted underwater camera, with its own secrets to share ...and to keep.
Another wildly imaginative Caldecott Medal winning picture book from David Wiesner.
"Beautiful child's graphic novel... Wiesner keeps his viewpoint strictly childlike, magnifying the mundane until you see his world in a grain of sand." Evening Standard "A wonderful, thought-provoking picture book." -- Clare Poole The Bookseller "Beautiful" Telegraph "Wonderfully imaginative ... The pictures are packed with details and each re-reading provides more joy," -- Marilyn Brocklehurst The Bookseller "Its playful sophistication conveys a complexity of ideas that linger in the mind long after the book has been closed, encouraging discussion and inspiring all kinds of responses."
