David Gets in Trouble

David Gets in Trouble

by David Shannon Illustrated by David Shannon

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.
