The Barnes & Noble Review
The feisty and adorable little star of No, David! and David Goes to School returns, but this time, the young rascal finds his voice, telling us all his favorite excuses for when he gets in trouble.

David always has a special line up his sleeve, as we watch the mischief maker in action. Whether it's "I couldn't help it!" after making faces during a class picture, "I was hungry!" following a tasting of Doggy Yums dog biscuits, or "But Dad says it!" after an apparent slip of the tongue (he gets a mouthful of soap bar), David tries deflecting his hijinks, like any kid expert in the art of shenanigans. But when sad and sorry feelings well up -- and David offers an apology -- Mom is there with a loving touch, and the reassured boy drifts happily off to sleep.

In this simple yet hilarious look at trying to diffuse punishment and forgiveness, David Shannon's funny hero simply takes the cake. You can't help but love him despite all of his goof-ups, especially with Shannon's distinctive loose-lined artwork, which is chaotic but heartwarming, just like David himself. A perfect discussion beginner for little troublemakers at home and a slam-dunk storytime read-aloud -- there's no excuse not to pick up this winner. Matt Warner

What People are saying about this

David Shannon
Hace algunos años, mi madre me envió un libro que yo hice cuando era pequeño. Tenia dibujos de David haciendo cosas que no deberia hacer, y el texto consistia exclusivamente en las palabras "no" y "David" ¡las ùicas palabras que sabia escribir! Pensé que seria divertido hacer una nueva versión para evocar todas las veces que las mamás dicen "no". Como el original, se ¡No, David!

En la segunda parte, David va al colegio David descubre pronto que su maestra también utiliza la palabra "no" a su manera. Ahora le toca a David hablar y resulta que la palabra "no" es también una de sus favoritas. Por supuesto que cada vez que su mamá dice "no", es porque se preocupa por su seguridad y porque desea que crezca y se convierta en una persona buena y responsable. Lo que en realidad ella quiere decir es: "te quiero". Pero cuando David dice "no", simplemente quiere decir: "no quiero meterme en lios".
