Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Only the person who gave us Tuesday could have devised this fantastic tale, which begins with a school trip to the Empire State Building. There a boy makes friends with a mischievous little cloud, who whisks him away to the Cloud Dispatch Center for Sector 7 (the region that includes New York City). The clouds are bored with their everyday shapes, so the boy obligingly starts to sketch some new ones.

The wordless yet eloquent account of this unparalleled adventure is a funny, touching story about art, friendship, and the weather, as well as a visual tour de force.

Review:

"The illustrations for the wordless story are startlingly and powerfully conceived, the fanciful cloud-shapes both funny and elegant." Hornbook Guide to Children

Review:

"The work as a whole is an inspired embodiment of what seems to be this artist's approach to story and vision: the more you look, the more there is to see." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[A] good choice for getting the imagination to work." Booklist

Review:

"A fine addition to Wiesner's wordless and near wordless oeuvre." Children's Literature

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.
