strictly childlike, magnifying the mundane until you see his world
in a grain of sand." * Evening Standard *
"Wiesner's imaginative and technical brilliance come together here . . . giving a world of details to look at and look at and wonder." -- Valerie Coghlan * INIS, Editor's Choice *
"Beautiful" * Telegraph *

PreS Up-Photos developed from a "Melville underwater camera" washed ashore astound the boy who discovers the device. Fantastic scenes of undersea life and images of children from years before encourage him to add his own photo to the series. Wiesner wordlessly stretches readers' imaginations about the timeless ocean circling the globe. (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
