Flotsam By David Wiesner

While collecting Flotsam - anything floating that has been washed ashore - a young boy stumbles across a barnacle-encrusted underwater camera, with its own secrets to share... and to keep!

What happens in the story? 


Collecting shells on the beach, a boy is caught by a wave. When the wave calms down, he finds an old-fashioned camera containing what he thinks are impossible scenes of underwater life.

There’s also a record of the last child to find the camera. She took a picture of herself holding the photo of the previous child. The boy looks closely, only to discover a trail of photos inside photos, heading back in time. He takes his own photo and throws the camera back into the sea. It’s washed ashore on the other side of the world, and the cycle begins again.
