Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Caldecott Honor artist and bestseller David Shannon make readers laugh aloud when young Spencer's mountain of toys becomes overwelming. A story with universal appeal

"When David gets in trouble, he always says . . . 'NO! It's not my fault! I didn't mean to! It was an accident!'" Whatever the situation, David's got a good excuse. And no matter what he's done "wrong," it's never really his fault.

Soon, though, David realizes that making excuses makes him feel bad, and saying he's sorry makes him feel better. Once again, David Shannon entertains us with young David's mischievous antics and a lighthearted story that's sure to leave kids (and parents) laughing.

Review:

"In a series of hilarious snapshots of trouble-in-progress, David hurtles from one scrape to another....The exuberant artwork crackles with energy and color...as Shannon carefully hews to a child's-eye view of the world....Readers will gladly call for 'More, David!'" Publishers Weekly

Review:

"The reason children will want to reread this book...is the vividness and energy of Shannon's art, which bleeds exuberantly off the page. The other reason they will want to reread it...is the presence of some gentle gross-out humor....Not to fear; this isn't South Park. Happily, though, it isn't dumb and benign and forgettable either." Dwight Garner, The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Shannon's double-paged spreads are active in mood, color, and sight gags as David unfurls one excuse after another....Disarming as he always is — what a blessing [David] lives on the page and not in our lives." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"The contemporary stylistic art is just right for depicting the boy's antics and his high-energy personality. David's comments in handwritten text sympathetically and humorously show his childlike reasoning and his eventual willingness to take responsibility for his actions....Children who enjoyed No, David! and David Goes to School will welcome this lighthearted sequel." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

When David gets in trouble, he has excuses right up until bedtime, when he realizes he really is sorry.

David Shannon knows how to write/illustrate a kids book. Have been reading this to my sone since he was one. The story and pictures give little "shout outs" to moms and dads who remember getting in trouble and it teaches kids that all kids get in trouble sometimes, but that their mommies and daddies still love them anyway.
