A stunning picture book, by prize-winning illustrator David Wiesner, who almost wordlessly tells a magical and astonishing adventure through brilliant illustrations.
On one unusual Tuesday evening a strange event occurs. The frogs on the pond rise up, up and away, each one aboard a lily pad. Their airborne adventures through the night are full of surprise and wonder while the absence of text inspires imagination and dreaming.

Synopsis

Tuesday by David Wiesner

In this ingenious and imaginative - nearly wordless - picture book, frogs in a pond lift off on their lily pads and fly to a nearby town where they zoom through a woman's living room, encounter a dog playing in his yard, and distract a bathrobe-clad citizen from his midnight snack.

Who knows what will happen next Tuesday?

Reviews

About the Author

David Wiesner

David Wiesner is one of the best-loved and most highly acclaimed picture book creators in the world. His books have been translated into more than a dozen languages and have won numerous awards.

Wiesner generally spends several years creating each new book. Many versions are sketched and revised until the story line flows smoothly and each image works the way he wants it to. He creates three-dimensional models of objects he can't observe in real life, such as flying pigs and lizards standing upright, to add authenticity to his drawings.
David Wiesner lives with his family outside Philadelphia.
