A boy finds a camera washed up on the beach. He removes the film and takes it to be processed. The photos reveal astonishing scenes beneath the waves but the last one is of a child holding a photo, of a child holding a photo, of a child holding a photo… The boy knows what he must do next.

A wordless feast for the eyes, with much to ponder, and a final mystery solved. Fascinating, thought-provoking and absolutely beautiful. For children who love a puzzle, or the beach, or exploring, or magic.
