FLOTSAM: A floating accumulation of miscellaneous stuff
FLOTSAM has won the 2007 Randolph Caldecott Medal
for the most distinguished American picture book for children

"Telling tales through imagery is what storytellers have done through the ages. Wiesner's wordless tale resonates with visual images that tell his story with clever wit and lively humor," —Caldecott Medal Committee Chair Janice Del Negro

When a camera drifts from shore to shore (that is, from store to store), what wonderful things will it see before going back out on the tide?

In an array of photos, bookstores share in-store events, still life, dress-up, warm family photos, and weird sights along the road. David Wiesner has selected the top three photo entries.
