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.
"These witty, wonderfully imaginative pictures reward closer study. Hurray for Wiesner, and his grand sense of humor." Kirkus Reviews with Pointers
"As in the mysterious goings-on of that particular Tuesday not long ago, Wiesner again takes off on a flight of fantasy, this time set in the not-too-distant future. This sci-fi adventure begins with Holly Evans, a visionary third grader who launches some seedlings into the iconosphere as part of a science experiment, And so the fun begins . . ." School Library Journal, Starred
"Wiesner's dry humor, irony and artistic wizardry have been masterfully marshalled into a visual and literary feast. Kids will relish rolling amusingly alliterative phrases off their tongues almost as much as they delight in these wryly rendered paintings. . . . Spectacular to look at, great fun to read-it is, in sum, executed with consummate skill." Publishers Weekly, Starred
