5.0 out of 5 stars A book for all ages 3 Jan 2002
By A Customer
I bought this book long before I had kids, because I loved the illustrations that seemed to jump off the page.
The story is cute and imaginative and always makes me smile inside and out. Now that I have kids it has become one of their favorite "comfort books" for rainy days.

5.0 out of 5 stars pure excellence 12 April 1998
By A Customer
this book is not only for children... it brings out the imagination in all. the single greatest book i have ever picked up is "tuesday" simply because without text it leaves the reader to make up the story as they turn the pages. instead of reading words and generating pictures in the mind the reader can generate a whole story around the pictures.

Tuesday is the most imaginative picture book that I have ever seen. It is a wordless fantasy of people, animals, and plants that allows you to supply your own story. As such, it will provide endless opportunities for you and your child to entertain one another. What really is going on? What does it mean? What will happen next Tuesday?
The book is illustrated very much like a graphic novel (a series of comic books bound together in softcover form, if you haven't seen one) but without words. The book does have a few indicators of time and day of the week, that provide the minimal connection to reality needed to launch the story into space.
The images here are very whimsical. Frogs fly on lily pads in formation like the Blue Angels, and create lots of unexpected fun. The book is most interesting when you see what happens on the second Tuesday. How about the third? You'll have to use your imagination for that one.
This book deserves its Caldecott Medal for outstanding illustrations. In no other book that I can think of do the illustrations carry the story. The book uses vibrant colors, done in a low-key way. Stylistically, it is a take-off on the science fiction and super hero genres in pictures.
You will be laughing out loud when you see what the frogs are up to. You will also enjoy the visual puns on textless pages.
Where else can pictures tell the story? Have you ever engaged in pantomimes, shadow puppets, or charades with your child? If you haven't, this would be a good time to introduce those enjoyable games.
Imagination can take you anywhere you want!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tuesday is no ordinary day! 5 July 2001
One Tuesday evening by the light of the rising moon, a turtle on a log watches the sky because the frog are going to fly!
See the fish gaping out from the water, the lilies in the swamp & the big fat frogs on their magic lily pads as the moon lightens the nighttime world.
Behold the birds of the air fly squawking away as the frogs dive & swoop; behold the sleeping homes of humans way down below; see the lone midnight snacker in his kitchen not daring to look out his window.
See, see - do you see dawn's early light & the frogs hurrying home, dropping their magic carpets on the highway where policemen, police dogs & detectives will ponder on a strange litter of lily pads. Do you know who's going to fly next Tuesday?
I love a David Wiesner book - his pictures are filled with dramatic perspectives & improbabe, hilariously exciting, speculations! If you have not seen Tuesday I urge you to go find it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book for year 5 English lessons 15 April 2009
What a surprise this book was!
To follow Hamilton Trust year 5 planning for a formal police report you need it and so I ordered it. It is now my favourite children's book ever! After two weeks they produced fantastic writing as it really caught all of our imaginations. Every time we looked we spotted something else that delighted us.The joy is in the detail.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reviews from my Year 4 class 16 May 2011
I have been reading Tuesday with my Year 4 class who have written reviews of the book. Here are some of the things they had to say.

Every time you turn the page, your eyes are fixed to the page. Kellie
What I like is that the pictures are very exciting and when I read it, it takes me to a different world. Blain
It is a magical story about flying frogs who have a big secret and I would recommend this book 10 out of 10. Katie
This is a page-turning wonder, a magical journey through a Tuesday night when frogs fly and get up to mischief. Alex
At first I thought, oh, but then I thought it was amazing. Alezah
When I read this amazing book it really brings out my imagination. Brandon
It was really funny and when I had finished it I wanted more. Sian
When I got half way through I wanted to read more and more. You just want to carry on - it's dazzling. Madi
As soon as I opened the book I was engaged with laughter and exitement. It's an eye-popping book. Kobi
This book is good because every time you look at the book you see different things. Bradley
Page by page my eyes were fixed to the book. I would recommend this book to everyone. Hannah
It was magical - I couldn't take my eyes off the book. The ending is really cool but I don't want to give it away. Sydney

5.0 out of 5 stars Great to develop the imagination. 26 Nov 2008
By Doris
When I opened this book for the first time I felt myself wanting to ask question after question. This book opens up the mind of the reader and the illustration build a tale.
This book is great to read with children of all ages. It opens up a wealth of questions which can only be explained through illustrations and imagination. It also is great to use as a stimulus for writing - children writing their own Tuesday or writing about next Tuesday.
Children always come back to this book again and again and when you read it yourself you will see why.
