About This Item

New York: Clarion Books. Fine in Fine dust jacket. 2006. First Edition; Fifth Printing; Signed by Author. Hardcover. 0618194576 . An attractive first edition/later printing in about Fine condition in alike, lightly edge-worn dust-jacket, SIGNED by author and illustrator David Wiesner on the half-title page; 2007 winner of the Caldecott Medal, David Wiesner's Flotsam sets a dreamy adventure up for a young boy exploring the treasure filled beach sands. Wiesner's magical illustrations override the need for words as the reader discovers the secrets of an underwater camera that has floated ashore; Color Illustrations; [40] pages .

Synopsis

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. Each of David Wiesner's amazing picture books has revealed the magical possibilities of some ordinary thing or happening--a frog on a lily pad, a trip to the Empire State Building, a well-known nursery tale. In this Caldecott Medal winner, a day at the beach is the springboard into a wildly imaginative exploration of the mysteries of the deep, and of the qualities that enable us to witness these wonders and delight in them.
