    No, David!

    by David Shannon

    In award-winning writer and illustrator David Shannon's charming and chaotic picture book, a mischievous toddler is scolded for wreaking general havoc, but soon returns to his mother's embrace and a warm "I love you."

    "The vigorous and wacky full-color acrylic paintings portray a lively and imaginative boy whose stick-figure body conveys every nuance of anger, exuberance, defiance, and best of all, the reassurance of his mother's love. This book is perfect for reading aloud. Children will relish the deliciously bad behavior and the warm and cuddly conclusion." - School Library Journal

About This Book

David doesn't mean to get in trouble. It's not his fault. Most of the time, it's just an accident! Or maybe he forgot something. Or some furniture got in the way. Whatever the situation, David has a really good explanation, and it will leave kids and parents laughing. Once again, David Shannon proves he knows every excuse in the book, especially when faced with the age-old problem of dealing with grown-ups.

Soon, though, David realizes that making excuses makes him feel bad, and saying he's sorry makes him feel better. Once again, David Shannon entertains us with young David's mischievous antics and a lighthearted story that's sure to leave kids (and parents) laughing.
