Houghton Mifflin Harcourt | August 18, 1997 | Trade Paperback

Tuesday is rated 5 out of 5 by 3.
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.

From Our Editors

"Dominated by rich blues and greens, and fully exploiting its varied perspectives, this book treats its readers to the pleasures of airborne adventure. It may not be immortal, but kids will love its lighthearted, meticulously imagined, fun-without-a-moral fantasy"--"School Library Journal", starred review. A Caldecott Medal Book

Editorial Reviews

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

"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
