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.
David Wiesner says; ‘I had a visual idea of a kid walking along a beach finding something — something strange or magical, I didn’t know what it was going to be. So that vision combined with a more vague idea, on a story level, of a way to connect kids across time and space, some kind of connection through the ages. When I thought of the idea of a kid finding a camera, it just seemed to work so well because I could throw the camera out there in the ocean, and the story just came together.’
