Description



About the Book



In this wordless masterpiece from a two-time Caldecott medalist, a bright, science-minded boy goes to the beach equipped to collect and examine flotsam--anything floating that has been washed ashore. Full color.



Book Synopsis



In this extraordinary Caldecott Medal winner and New York Times bestseller by David Wiesner, a beach day is the springboard to a wildly imaginative exploration of fantastical mysteries of the deep--and of human connections through time.

A young boy comes to the beach eager to collect and examine flotsam--anything floating that has been washed ashore. But nothing among his usual finds compares with the discovery of a barnacle-encrusted underwater camera with its own secrets to share...and to keep.

Meet unexpected underseas denizens and enter fascinating worlds within worlds in this entrancing celebration of imagination, creativity, and the impulse to share that which delights and amazes us.

A beautiful picture book by a master of the form, David Wiesner, who has been awarded the Caldecott Medal three times and the Caldecott Honor twice.



Review Quotes




"Wiesner offers another exceptional, wordless picture book that finds wild magic in quiet, everyday settings."
-- Booklist (starred review)

"In Wiesner's much-honored style, the paintings are cinematic, coolly restrained and deliberate...An invitation not to be resisted."

-- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Wiesner's detailed watercolors make the absurd wonderfully believable...and children will surely love 'Flotsam' from start to finish."

-- New York Times Book Review, Notable Book

"The meticulous and rich detail of Wiesner's watercolors makes the fantasy involving and convincing."
-- Horn Book Magazine

"Wiesner continues to show children that things aren't always what they seem. Would the Caldecott committee consider a three-peat?"
-- BookPage

"Wiesner returns with his traditional wordless-narrative format for another fantastical outing." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
