Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

A Caldecott classic celebrating twenty years in print.

David Wiesner received the 1991 Caldecott Medal for Tuesday. In the years that followed, he went on to receive two more Caldecotts, and Tuesday went on to sell half a million copies in the United States and to be published in a dozen foreign countries. Now, with remarkable advances in the technology of color reproduction, the original artwork for Tuesday is being reproduced anew, for an edition even more faithful to the palette and texture of David Wiesner’s watercolor paintings. The whimsical account of a Tuesday when frogs were airborne on their lily pads will continue to enchant readers of all ages.

Author Bio

David Wiesner's interest in visual storytelling dates back to high school days when he made silent movies and drew wordless comic books. Born and raised in Bridgewater, New Jersey, he graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Illustration. While a student, he created a painting nine feet long, which he now recognizes as the genesis of Free Fall, his first book of his own authorship, for which he was awarded a Caldecott Honor Medal in 1989. David won his first Caldecott Medal in 1992 for Tuesday, and he has gone on to win twice more: in 2002 for The Three Pigs and in 2007 for Flotsam. He is only the second person in the award’s history to win the Caldecott Medal three times. David and his wife, Kim Kahng, and their two children live near Philadelphia, where he devotes full time to illustration and she pursues her career as a surgeon.

Editorial Reviews

"Kids will love its lighthearted, meticulously imagined, fun-without-a-moral fantasy. Tuesday is bound to take off." School Library Journal, Starred
