About this deal

A bright, science-minded boy goes to the beach equipped to collect and examine flotsam-anything floating that has been washed ashore. He went on to become a student at the Rhode Island School of Design, where he was able to commit himself to the full-time study of art and to explore further his passion for visual storytelling.

The author and illustrator, David Wiesner, is famous for creating other wordless texts, such as Tuesday and Free Fall. Flotsam has won the 2007 Randolph Caldecott Medal for the most distinguished American picture book for children. He creates three-dimensional models of objects he can't observe in real life, such as flying pigs and lizards standing upright, to add authenticity to his drawings. Wiesner offers another exceptional, wordless picture book that finds wild magic in quiet, everyday settings. David Wiesner is one of the best-loved and most highly acclaimed picture book creators in the world.

But there's no way he could have prepared for one particular discovery: a barnacle-encrusted underwater camera, with its own secrets to share . This is a three-week Writing Root for Flotsam by David Wiesner in which children dicsover a range of ‘Flotsam’ items (either after a visit to the seaside, or that have appeared in the classroom). Using his magnifying glass and microscope, he finds that the first is of a boy in old clothes from about a century ago waving.

His books have been translated into more than a dozen languages and have won numerous awards in the United States and abroad. Horn Book Magazine says, "The meticulous and rich detail of Wiesner's watercolors makes the fantasy involving and convincing. Children go on to read and reflect on the book, making predictions and retelling orally and in writing.Es una bonita historia, con elementos de fantasía, sin texto con el que los niños y niñas, o sus madres y madres, podrán relatar lo que le ocurre al protagonista a través de las imágenes por si mismos. Three of the picture books he both wrote and illustrated became instant classics when they won the prestigious Caldecott Medal: Tuesday in 1992, The Three Pigs in 2002, and Flotsam in 2007, making him only the second person in the award's long history to have won three times.
