Caldecott Honor artist David Shannon is back with an all-new, original board book that lets young readers see what the star of the bestselling No, David! books did as a troublemaking toddler.
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!"
David's teacher has her hands full. From running in the halls to chewing gum in class, David's high-energy antics fill each school day with trouble, and are sure to bring a smile to even the best-behaved reader.
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.
Hey! What's that smell?! Join David as he discovers the five senses: touch, hear, see, smell, and taste. From petting the dog to banging on a drum, David knows how to have a good time. But he also knows that there's nothing better than playing a game with Mama at the end of a busy and exciting day.
