Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The unpredictable events of a particular Tuesday unroll before the reader with the precision and clarity of a silent movie. A Caldecott Medal book.

Review:

"A surreal, almost wordless picture book shows the mysterious levitation of lily pads and frogs from a pond one Tuesday at dusk. The frogs soar around town until they fall to the ground at sunrise. Large, detailed watercolors use dramatic points of view and lighting effects and often show a humorous range of expressions. There is a forecast of further surprises to come on following Tuesdays." Copyright © 1991 The Horn Book, Inc. All rights reserved. Horn Book, Fanfare

Review:

"These witty, wonderfully imaginative pictures reward closer study. Hurray for Wiesner, and his grand sense of humor." Kirkus Reviews with Pointers

Review:

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

Synopsis:

The lively imagination of Caldecott medalist David Wiesner forecasts astounding goings-on for a Tuesday in the not too distant future — an occurrence of gigantic vegetal proportions.

About the Author

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. Tuesday was the 1992 Caldecott Medal Winner, and in 2002 David won his second Caldecott Medal for The Three Pigs. Mr. Wiesner and his wife, Kim Kahang, and their two children live in Philadelphia, where he devotes full time to illustration and she pursues her career as a surgeon.

Maureen McCarron, June 4, 2014 (view all comments by Maureen McCarron)
This book rates very highly on my List of "Terrific Wordless". When I taught elementary students with communication & literacy challenges, I encouraged my students to write their own words to the picture story in "Tuesday." Wiesner's beautiful, detailed illustrations (& few words) lend themselves very well to instruction, as well as a good deal of plain fun. Now my 3 year old grandson is a Wiesner fan as well.
