David Wiesner Presents "TUESDAY"


“In the case of “Tuesday” I had the desire to make something
that I thought was funny but also to bring into it some of the language of the
comic book. I grew up reading comic books.... Guy up having a midnight snack
outside the window, here come the frogs. So I drew that shape, that round
blobby shape and the round circular bottom and I looked at it and this is what I
saw. I saw flying saucers particularly ones from old 1950s science fiction
movies, the classic flying saucer. And that’s what made me think, “Oh!” I can
take that frog on a lily pad. “ David Wiesner, author /illustrator, “Tuesday”
