Summary:Flotsam is the story of a young boy at the beach who discovers an underwater camera floating in the surf. Developing the pictures reveals some remarkable scenes from the ocean floor including a mechanical fish, islands on the backs of starfish, and undersea aliens, as well as a picture of the camera’s former discoverers. The young boy includes his own picture and tosses the camera back into the sea.
Review:Like Tuesday, a funny and imaginative tale full of surprises. Slightly more complex than Tuesday, older readers may be more comfortable with this story than smaller ones.
