The unpredictable events of a particular Tuesday unroll before the reader with the precision and clarity of a silent movie. A Caldecott Medal book.
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
David Weisner has allowed his imagination to run free in Tuesday, and the result is a wondrous and mysterious picture book that mixes the ordinary with the unimaginable. He's merged his talent with the palette and his penchant for odd perspective to create a book where frogs careen through suburbia on flying lily pads, startling witnesses and spooking a dog. And that's just for starters. Tuesday has few words and no human protagonist, relying instead on a surreal and supernatural vision. The book, for children ages 5 years old and up, won the 1992 Caldecott Medal.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.
