When following the book step-by-step, you get an

Cannot find variable `onClick`

<line number>|         , onClick { operation = "SELECT_PHOTO", data = thumbnail.url }


error after adding the onClick event handler. The fix is to add

 import Html.Events exposing (onClick)


IMHO, this should be mentioned in the section "adding onClick to viewThumbnail" (the same applies to import Html.App in the following section)

UPDATE I'm feeling kind of silly now - the imports are mentioned on the following page in the book, therefore, I'd like to remove this thread. Sorry.

I agree with OP here. It's very confusing to have a code listing that takes me from working version A to a non-working version, only to find a page later some more code I need to add to get working code again. Adding significant code in the wrong order so it's non-working is a recipe for frustration that when I teach beginner programmers I guide them to avoid. Much higher chances of success if you add small changes keeping a working program as much as possible.

As I read and follow along, it's not clear which changes are ready for testing and which are intermediate, non-runnable steps.
