About this deal

This is a three-week Writing Root for Flotsam by David Wiesner in which children dicsover a range of ‘Flotsam’ items (either after a visit to the seaside, or that have appeared in the classroom). You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. This wordless book's vivid watercolour paintings have a crisp realism that anchors the elements of fantasy.

Horn Book Magazine says, "The meticulous and rich detail of Wiesner's watercolors makes the fantasy involving and convincing. Flotsam has won the 2007 Randolph Caldecott Medal for the most distinguished American picture book for children. It is carried across the ocean by a variety of fish, sea life, the artic, and even a city of mermaids until it again washes ashore and another child finds it. They consist of a robot fish, an octopus reading, a pufferfish being used as a hot air balloon, turtles with cities on their backs, tiny visiting aliens, and giant starfish with islands on their backs.But there's no way he could have prepared for one particular discovery: a barnacle-encrusted underwater camera, with its own secrets to share .

At heart it is a humorous fantasy story that also looks closely at the cyclical nature of life, as well as the ultimate power of nature. He went on to become a student at the Rhode Island School of Design, where he was able to commit himself to the full-time study of art and to explore further his passion for visual storytelling. Es una bonita historia, con elementos de fantasía, sin texto con el que los niños y niñas, o sus madres y madres, podrán relatar lo que le ocurre al protagonista a través de las imágenes por si mismos. Children go on to read and reflect on the book, making predictions and retelling orally and in writing. His books have been translated into more than a dozen languages and have won numerous awards in the US and all over the globe.This book had such an impact on my 6 year old - when we first ‘read’ it together he actually cried at the ending. Many versions are sketched and revised until the story line flows smoothly and each image works the way he wants it to. Flotsam is a great example of a wordless picture book that creates engagement through its detailed sequence of images, rather than its text and, as such, requires a high level of inference. Wiesner offers another exceptional, wordless picture book that finds wild magic in quiet, everyday settings. Flotsam won the Caldecott Medal in 2007 as well as being recognised by several other awards, and was chosen as the New York Times best illustrated children’s book that year.
