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. 

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.
