David Wiesner received the 1991 Caldecott Medal for Tuesday. In the years that followed, he went on to receive two more Caldecotts, and Tuesday went on to sell half a million copies in the United States and to be published in a dozen foreign countries. Now, with remarkable advances in the technology of color reproduction, the original artwork for Tuesday is being reproduced anew, for an edition even more faithful to the palette and texture of David Wiesner’s watercolor paintings.

Alonzo Quixada, a middle-aged Spaniard, is so enthralled by knights' tales of gallantry, chivalry and adventure in the days of yore, that he renounces his old identity to become Don Quixote De La Mancha. Dressed in ancient rusty armor and mounted on a broken down horse, he appoints Sancho Panza, a neighboring peasant, to be his squire and believes a washerwoman to be the Lady Dulcinea, his muse.
