Spending a day at the beach, a young boy finds an underwater camera that washed up on shore. He takes the film inside of the camera to be developed and learns many secrets about the sea, getting a big surprise!

The pictures in this book are absolutely beautiful and imaginative. They share secrets of the sea that all ages can enjoy. Many of the illustrations could be examined for a long time, with more than meets the eye on initial glance.  The pictures are also very good at telling a cohesive and interesting story. Great for a wide range of ages!
