The back flap of the dust jacket has a color photo of author and artist David Wiesner as a five year old looking perfectly suited to slip right into his book! He undoubtedly combed the beach and might have been that curious little fellow who found the barnicle-encrusted underwater camera or just imagined that he was. It's quite apparent that he has quite the imagination! FLOTSAM is a book with a great story, great water color paintings, great detail and a great wordless storytelling style! I read this book while visiting the beach which made the whole experience even richer.
