Book Title
David Wiesner
Winner of the 2007 Caldecott Medal 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. Each of David Wiesner's amazing picture books has revealed the magical possibilities of some ordinary thing or happening--a frog on a lily pad, a trip to the Empire State Building, a well-known nursery tale. In this Caldecott Medal winner, a day at the beach is the springboard into a wildly imaginative exploration of the mysteries of the deep, and of the qualities that enable us to witness these wonders and delight in them.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: David WiesnerPublisher: Clarion BooksPublished: 09/01/2006ISBN: 9780618194575Pages: 40Weight: 1.06lbsSize: 9.10h x 11.50w x 0.50dAward: NAPPA Gold Awards - WinnerAward: Red Clover Award - WinnerAward: Capitol Choices: Noteworthy Books for Children and Teens - RecommendedAward: Quill Awards - WinnerAward: Caldecott Medal - WinnerAward: Book Sense Book of the Year Award - Honor BookAward: Parents Choice Award (Fall) (1998-2007) - WinnerReview Citations: Publishers Weekly 07/24/2006 pg. 56Kirkus Review - Children 08/01/2006 pg. 798Booklist 08/01/2006 pg. 76School Library Journal 09/01/2006 pg. 186Bulletin of Ctr for Child Bks 09/01/2006 pg. 44 - RecommendedHorn Book Magazine 09/01/2006 pg. 571Time 12/11/2006 pg. 92New Yorker (The) 12/04/2006 pg. 93Kirkus Best Children's Books 12/01/2006 pg. 26New York Times 11/12/2006 pg. 26Booklist Ed Choice Youth 01/01/2007 pg. 16Hornbook Guide to Children 01/01/2007 pg. 50 - Superior,Well Above AverageChristian Home & School 10/01/2007 pg. 26SLJ's Best Books 12/01/2006 pg. 43
