No, David!

Have you met David? He’s a little handful. Somehow, he just can’t stay out of trouble, and two words are always on his mother’s lips: “No, David!”. He jumps on the furniture, picks his nose, scribbles on walls, floods the bathroom and runs naked down the street. But whatever he does, Mum loves him just the same… A hilarious but touching story which will reassure kids and have them shrieking with laughter.

“David is a small, snaggle-toothed piehead whose mischief – for those who don’t have to clean up after him – is nothing short of exhilarating.” Kirkus Reviews

“This book is perfect for reading aloud. Children will relish the deliciously bad behavior and the warm and cuddly conclusion.” Susan Pine, New York Public Library

  • David Shannon

    Caldecott Honor winner and ‘New York Times’ best-seller, David Shannon is the author / illustrator of the popular DAVID series, ‘No, David!’, ‘David Goes to School’ and ‘David Gets Into Trouble’.

    He was inspired to write his DAVID titles after his mother sent him a book he wrote as a little boy. It was illustrated with drawings of David doing all sorts of things he wasn’t supposed to do, and the text consisted entirely of the words ‘no’ and ‘David’!

    Once you step in to the ages of ‘David Gets in Trouble’ you’ll discover Shannon hasn’t slipped too far from this winning formula of his youth.

    Awards

    David Shannon was awarded a Caldecott Honor for the bestselling No, David!
