Beloved picture book creator David Shannon introduces a new character in a satisfyingly silly and subversive take on a familiar parable.

If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.


Meet Mr. Nogginbody.

Armed with his new hammer

he fixes his floor

then the wall

and the picture on the wall

and the shower

and the stop sign at the end of the street. . .


What else will Mr. Nogginbody “fix”?


Celebrated author David Shannon’s comically misguided new character gets carried away by success, and kids will laugh out loud at the consequences.
