I don't always like wordless picture books, but I just love this one. David Wiesner won the Caldecott Medal for the third time for Flotsam in 2007. And deservedly so. This is such a beautiful book, and tells a wonderful story. It's a modern day message in a bottle really.
Flotsam is the beautifully illustrated story of a young boy spending a day at the beach with his family. Certainly a familiar experience for may of us.
He is an inquisitive young fellow.
And makes a great find on the beach,
that takes him on a magical journey around the world, and through time.
Read it, even if you don't have a young person to read it with. It's fantastic.
