The unpredictable events of a particular Tuesday unroll before the reader with the precision and clarity of a silent movie in this nearly wordless, very creative Caldecott medalist story.
On this particular Tuesday night, some frogs wake up to find themselves floating in the air! They enjoy their night of freedom, sitting on their flying lily pads, exploring the nearby houses while the inhabitants are asleep. But with the first rays of the sun, they all fall back to the ground and go back to their quiet lives in the pond. Could anything else as exciting happen? When the next Tuesday rolls around, we are left with the image of pigs rising into the air! David Wiesner has outdone himself in incredible illustrations. Recommended for ages 4 to 8. The 1992 Caldecott Medal winner.
