really liked it

1) Genre: Wordless
2) Summary: On Tuesdays, it seems like there is something fishy going on. A group of frogs fly over the town similar to a bird. They have fun doing silly things on Tuesdays, but once the night is over, they return to their normal frog-like stance and wait until their next journey!
3) Critique:
a) As with any wordless book, the illustrations are crucial to the content.
b) The pictures alone carry the plot of this book. The richness in color and detail show depth within the characters humans and animals. The reader can totally sense a mood of peculiarity by just looking at the character’s faces.
c) I loved the illustration of the frog’s watching a sleeping old woman’s TV (p. 18). I especially loved how the reader can observe the reflection of the TV in the woman’s glasses. To me this scene created a balance of calamity and humor.
D) Curriculum Connection: This book can help young students predict what will happen and create their own story based on what they observe. Also it can help students visually put events of a story in chronological order.
