About the Book

The lively imagination of Caldecott medalist David Wiesner forecasts astounding goings-on for a Tuesday in the not too distant future--an occurrence of gigantic vegetal proportions.

In this whimsical picture book from a master of the form, broccoli falls from the sky, bracing itself in the backyard; turnips hit the trail in the Rocky Mountains; and lima beans land in Levittown...

"Caldecott medalist Wiesner once again presents an offbeat premise and unconventional artwork to tempt youngsters into his deliciously skewed landscapes. Spectacular to look at, great fun to read--it is, in sum, executed with consummate skill." (Publishers Weekly starred review)

"Fans of Wiesner's offbeat art will be delighted." (The Horn Book starred review)

Critical Praise

"These witty, wonderfully imaginative pictures reward closer study. Hurray for Wiesner, and his grand sense of humor." — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
