Author Info
David Wiesner
David Wiesner grew up loving to draw in Bridgewater, New Jersey, and went on to receive a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1983. Though he was initially not interested in illustrating for children, Wiesner's early foray into creating cover art for a popular kid's magazine, Cricket, put him an extremely successful path that garnered the artist several awards. A three-time Caldecott Medal recipient, Wiesner is best known for his gorgeously detailed, wordless (or sparsely worded) picture books. In 2007, he won the Caldecott for FLOTSAM.

Praise
"The details of the Cloud Dispatch process are inventive and absorbing."
From the Publisher
Annotation Told without the use of words, and with rich color illustrations throughout, this book tells the story of how one small boy recreates what the clouds look like in the sky. A 2000 Caldecott Honor Book.
Editors Note While on a school trip to the Empire State Building, a boy is taken by a friendly cloud to visit Sector 7, where he discovers how clouds are shaped and channeled throughout the country. A fantastic fantasy that will capture any reader. Color illustrations throughout.
Editors Note 2 Only the person who gave us Tuesday could have devised this fantastic tale, which begins with a school trip to the Empire State Building. There a boy makes friends with a mischievous little cloud, who whisks him away to the Cloud Dispatch Center for Sector 7 (the region that includes New York City). The clouds are bored with their everyday shapes, so the boy obligingly starts to sketch some new ones. . . . The wordless yet eloquent account of this unparalleled adventure is a funny, touching story about art, friendship, and the weather, as well as a visual tour de force.
