Randolph Caldecott enjoyed drawing galloping huntsmen as he whirred through the landscape in a fast-moving train. A century later, David Wiesner was on board a commercial jetliner when he made his first doodles of frogs in flight on magic-carpet lily pads. Tuesday continues Wiesner's investigation of the picture book as an all but completely visual narrative art form, a possibility earlier explored by Caldecott in full-dress picture books spun from such slender rhymes as "Hey, Diddle, Diddle" and "Baby Bunting."

The first two were from my sketchbook that I did on the fateful plane ride.
