Praise for FLOTSAM

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

"Wiesner offers another exceptional, wordless picture book that finds wild magic in quiet, everyday settings . . . the masterful watercolors and ingeniously layered perspectives create a clear narrative, and children will eagerly fill in the story's wordless spaces with their own imagined storylines. Like Chris Van Allsburg's books and Wiesner's previous works, this visual wonder offers an invitation for viewers of all ages to rethink how they see, out in the world and in their mind's eye." —Booklist, starred review, August 2006

"New details swim into focus with every rereading of this immensely satisfying excursion." —Publisher's Weekly, starred review

"From arguably the most inventive and cerebral visual storyteller in children's literature comes a wordless invitation . . . not to be resisted." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"The meticulous and rich detail of Wiesner's watercolors makes the fantasy involving and convincing." —Horn Book Magazine
