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.
In each of his amazing picture books, David Wiesner 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. This time, 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.

I could barely stand to give it away and, simultaneously, I could barely wait for them to have it. The drawings are wonderful and the story is...magic. It's the only word I can use. I don't want to tell you a thing about it--just let it unfold, page by page.
That said, there are two things it might help you to know: 1) The kids and grown-ups who will love it most are those who have been to the beach and seen the ocean, even once. Not essential, but an enrichment. 2) Wordless or not, the story had to be read to the 3-year-old by his sister the first time, not vice versa. For an all-pictures book, it's more nuanced than you'd think.
Order a copy for every family you know.
And one for yourself.

This book is about a boy who finds a camera on the beach I like this book because it is interesting. Children and parents will like this book because it is a good book and it is interesting - by Cameron age 9.
The illustrations are beautifully drawn.
The reason I’ve not rated 5* is that the delivery person but it inbetween the bins on a wet day so the book is now crinkled due to being damp however it is still useable.
