    David Wiesner is a favorite as you know from some of my previous reviews. He never ceases to amaze me and this book is such a beautiful and magical addition to our collection.

    The story begins in the early evening on a Tuesday and all is quiet at the pond. All of a sudden, the frogs begin to levitate on their lily pads and travel into a nearby town. They visit a woman watching TV, a man having a snack, and a dog running through a yard.

    The only text in the book is the indication that it’s Tuesday with the time. Children love the watercolor illustrations and their imaginations can run wild with this story because it’s surreal.

    The idea of frogs traveling on lily pads is so magical and mysterious. How did they do it, and will they be back again next Tuesday?

    Such a delightfully enchanting picture book! We read a LOT of picture books when my kids were younger, but this one about frogs magically flying around town on their lily pads one fateful night was a favorite. I'm pretty certain we checked it out of the library multiple times.

    Since I was reading David Wiesner and the Art of Wordless Storytelling I read or reread some of his picture books, at least three of which have been awarded Caldecott medals. This is my favorite one, and the one that demonstrates--and sweetly, humorously--his interest in surrealism, as it involves suddenly flying frogs, still on their lily pads. On Tuesday, duh! Around eight.

    And then we are inside a house where a guy is having his late night snack and as Grandma has nodded off at her tv show at 11:21 P. M. And again at 4:38 in an encounter with the dog.

    And then next Tuesday at 7:58 P. M. something else begins to fly. . . well, okay, I won't say, even though a few thousand people have rated it so far.

    I mistakenly ordered the book from the library with a children's math kit which features toy clocks--yes, we can begin to learn to tell time, yay!--and frogs and so on, to the delight of this house. Kids again!

    I didn't enjoy this one as much as I thought I would. I really enjoyed Flotsam by this author. The story shows a Tuesday night when happenings outside don't pass as you would expect. The story was inventive and unusual but not one for me.

    This delighted and amazed me. The first frames brought bubbles of joy flooding my system. What a joy and delight this was to read. Do you read a wordless picture book, or do you experience it? I didn't know a thing about this. I really didn't know that flying frogs could bring so much joy to me.

    I love this man's imagination. How does he take something so simple and ground it enough in reality that I was totally there with him. This book is magical.

    The kids loved it. The nephew and I were having such fun that the niece had to come check it out as well. This is a house favorite now.

    “Tuesday” is a Caldecott Award winning book from the creative mind of David Wiesner and is about how some seemingly ordinary frogs from a pond go on a magical adventure throughout the city. David Wiesner’s story of a magic along with his beautiful illustrations makes “Tuesday” a mesmerizing book for children.

    David Wiesner has done it again with creating a wordless book that tells its story through his illustrations. David Wiesner’s story is interesting as the only words that he uses in this book are the short sentences that tell the reader what time the magical event is taking place. It is David Wiesner’s illustrations that take center stage here as they are magnificent and creative, especially of the images of the frogs flying through the air on their lily pads. The image that probably stood out the most for me was the image of the dog being chased by a whole horde of frogs riding on lily pads as the left page is flooded by images of frogs riding on their lily pads chasing the dog while the dog runs away in terror.

    “Tuesday” is an excellent book about the power of using one’s imagination as magic is the main theme here and this book will surely be an instant treat to children who love books dealing with adventure and imagination. I would recommend this book to children ages three and up since the majority of the book is wordless and young children will easily enjoy the illustrations.

    Wiesner explores just how powerful storytelling can be without using any words at all. This unique and eccentric story allows for perfect opportunities for prediction and speculation during discussion. The illustrations themselves are extremely entertaining and could fit tremendously well into a classroom environment either to explore as a class or individually. I believe this is a fantastic book to just have around the classroom allowing children to become familiar and engaged with wordless picture books.

    There are no words in this picture book; only gorgeous whimsical illustrations of ... flying frogs!!
    It is no wonder that this book is a Caldecott Medal winner. This is another outstanding children's book by the incredibly talented David Wiesner. I want to read all of his work!!

    Fun, mysterious, and with lovely expressively gorgeous illustrations presenting a lush greenish/blue colour scheme that is just to die for (and more than well deserving of its Caldecott Medal award), David Wiesner's Tuesday actually has made me laugh out loud more than a few times (I just LOVE the scene with the white laundry sheets and that the rambunctious dog so bent on chasing the poor flying frogs so completely has the tables tuned on it). And although my logical, analytical self would perhaps have appreciated a trifle more additional information or an explanation as to why the frogs (and then next Tuesday, supposedly pigs) are flying, my imaginative self was and remains both happy and satisfied at this remaining an unknown, a complete mystery. Recommended for fans of whimsical, esotheric wordless picture books, both young and old, and considering that I am really not all that much a fan of the former, my praise and my sweet enjoyment of Tuesday does indeed say quite a lot (as those of you who know me, are probably more than well aware of the fact that I generally much more appreciate and enjoy reading written narratives and that wordless picture books often leave me profoundly unsatisfied, something that has and fortunately not been at all the case for me with David Wiesner's Tuesday).

    A great deal of fun and so creative! I loved the humor and the adventures the frogs got into. The expressions (on frogs and people) are so spot-on and made me giggle. A very fun adventure. Wish there was a sequel giving us the adventure hinted at on the last page! :-)
