When I started reading David Wiesner's books the one title universally recommended was Tuesday. I have finally taken that advice to heart and read the book.
David Wiesner specializes in wordless picture books. In this one, the only word used (and it's used sparingly) is Tuesday as a reminder that all the events are taking place on a Tuesday night.
Those events involve frogs flying through the town and countryside on lily pads. The illustrations are Wiesner's usual wonderful surrealism. The pallet is rich in blues and greens befitting a night time amphibian adventures.
The book has won the 1992 Caldecott Medal. It also won two state awards: The Kentucky Bluegrass Award for K-3 in 1993 and the Young Hoosier Award for K-3 in the same year.
