Workshop talk, Q&A
A boy finds an analog camera on the beach that has been drifting on the world’s oceans for decades. The photos he has developed show a fantastic marine world full of highly intelligent, sophisticated creatures. Looking more closely at the last photo, he knows exactly what he has to do now. Bordering on picture book and comic, this Caldecott Medal-winning book tells of an incredible adventure without words, but in richly detailed, cinematic watercolor images.
Mr. Wuffles, the cat, discovers a tiny spaceship. He plays with it and almost eats the alien occupants. Hidden under a radiator, they forge a daring escape plan together with ants and a ladybug. The ingenious work, half picture book and half comic, tells its fantastic story in artistic picture panels of selected beauty – and almost without human words, but with fascinating alien hieroglyphics.
