Author Name:McCaughrean, Geraldine/ Mccaughrean, Ian (ILT)
When Flash's plane crashes in the wilderness, he finds himself injured and alone, armed with nothing but a cheap instant camera.
Then out of the sunlight appears a girl in a scarlet dress.
Sutira and her brother take Flash home to their remote village, where the people have never met a photographer--or seen a photo.
Flash has ten pictures left, but what should he take a picture of? The most beautiful girl in the village? An irreplaceable piece of art? A cow? Flash has always known the magic of photography, but not until he takes those last ten pictures does he realize just what wonders can be worked with light, love, and a camera.
“Exquisitely told; fascinatingly seductive.”–Kirkus Reviews“With its streamlined, easy-chapter text and thought-provoking subject, this would make an intriguing read-aloud for older audiences as well as a chapter book to take readers off the literal and literary beaten path.”–The BulletinFrom the Trade Paperback edition.
