Flotsam, by David Wiesner

A Melville underwater camera with barnacles is deposited on the beach while a young man studying a crab is knocked over by a large wave.

He quickly takes the film from the camera to a one-hour photo shop. The developed photos tell an amazing story. A story that indicates continuation when the boy tosses the camera back into the ocean after taking his own picture while holding a photo developed from the camera.

David Wiesner used vivid watercolors in photo format to tell this story of imagination and fantasy. It is no wonder David Wiesner received the Caldecott medal for this one.
