Tuesday

Like his other Caldecott-winning picture books, such as Flotsam and The Three Pigs, David Weisner‘s Tuesday takes its audience on a (mostly) wordless voyage through the heights of Weisner’s wonderfully wacky imagination. Publisher’s Weekly: “Here, a squadron of frogs soars through the night air one Tuesday, squatting upon lilypads that they use as flying carpets. Apparently intending no harm, these mysterious visitors to a suburban development leave a minimum of disruption as evidence of their eerie flight: a few startled eyewitnesses, some scattered lilypads, and a spooked dog. Wiesner’s visuals are stunning: slightly surrealistic, imbued with mood and mystery, and executed with a seemingly flawless command of palette and perspective.” Giggle factor: moderate, higher for the surprise ending. Adult enjoyment: likely. Illustrations: five jelly jars.
