From Publishers Weekly:

Vibrant pastel colored illustrations bring to life this clever story that is sure to capture a child's imagination. While pretending to be an airplane, Terry overhears his mother's phone conversation. Open-mouthed enough to expose her tonsils, Terry's wide-eyed mother announces: "Tuesday is going to be terrible!" Terry begins to visualize "terrible" events; imagining robbery, kidnapping, Martians, witches, ghosts, floods and tigers escaping from the zoo. Even the most fantastic, outlandish circumstances have everyday life repercussions for the boy. This author-illustrator team from England delivers an extremely funny picture book with broad appeal across the ocean as well. When "Terrible Tuesday" finally arrives, so do Terry's favorite cousins, to Terry's delight, and only the caricature of the frazzled mother reveals exactly what is "terrible!"

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3 When Terry overhears his mother saying "Tuesday is going to be terrible!," he imagines all the dreadful things that could happen. Ross' bright, humorous, cartoon-like pen-and-ink and watercolor double-page spreads illustrate Terry's worst fears, from robbers and kidnappers to Martians and tornadoes. But terrible Tuesday doesn't live up to these wild fantasies because ". . .what could be terrible about his favorite cousins coming over to play?" The closing picture depicts the child-created chaos and Terry's mother's horror. The humor is right on target for primary grade story time.Ellen Fader, Westport Public Library, Conn.
