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. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Leapin' lizards?er, frogs! The many fans of Wiesner's 1992 Caldecott Medal-winning Tuesday will be hoppy to learn that one of its acrobatic amphibian actors has landed in his very own book-and-toy package. The personable critter rests (courtesy of Velcro) on fabric lily pad, accompanied by a paperback edition of the book (Clarion, $22, ages 5-up ISBN 0-395-73511-4 May).
