No, David!

No, David!

Series: No, David!
by David Shannon Illustrated by David Shannon

When David Shannon was five years old, he wrote and illustrated his first book. On every page were these words: NO, DAVID! . . . and a picture of David doing things he was not supposed to do.  All he hears from his mother as he breaks his mother's rules is "No, David!", "That's enough, David!", and "Settle down!" 

Now David is all grown up. But some things never change. . . .

No, David! remains a perennial household favorite, delighting children, parents, and teachers alike. David is a beloved character, whose unabashed good humor, mischievous smile, and laughter-inducing antics underline the love parents have for their children — even when they misbehave. Children will find his outrageously bad behavior both funny and liberating as they see themselves in him.
