Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

David's mom always said no! No, no, no. No, David! is Shannon's delightfully illustrated book of all the naughty things he used to get told off for as a child. Follow David as he jumps on his bed, walks mud through the house and breaks plant pots.

Synopsis:

When author and artist David Shannon was five years old, he wrote a semi-autobiographical story of a little kid who broke all his mother's rules. He chewed with his mouth open, jumped on the furniture, and he broke his mother's vase. As a result, all David ever heard his mother say was "No, David!" Full color.

Synopsis:

Sam is a good boy, but he always seems to be getting into trouble! His grandma thinks he is being careless, running through her garden, but he is just saving his best friendand#8217;s hat from the wind. He helps his grandpa make honey toast, but then takes the rap when his mother arrives to survey the mess. His parents think Sam has disobeyed them by going out into a storm, when in fact he is saving a little hatchling that had fallen from its nest.

Part picture book and part graphic panels, older children will love this fun story and will identify with misunderstood Sam as he struggles between what is right and wrong, what is good and bad.

Praise for Bad Boy, Good Boy

"In four brief chapters, young readers meet Sam, an exuberant, somewhat impulsive pup whose heart is in the right place."

and#151;Kirkus Reviews

"Choraoand#8217;s visual storytelling is strongand#151;her watercolor, gouache, and black pen panel illustrations are suggestive of a graphic novel for youngest readers."

and#151;Publishers Weekly

"The animal characters have comical expressions and a great sense of movement. Chorao makes some enjoyably interesting choices in breaking up pages into comic-book panels, adding to the overall visual appeal. Kids will certainly relate to Sam, whose intentions are always good even if he sometimes causes a commotion."

and#151;School Library Journal

"Choraoand#8217;s signature watercolor, gouache, and ink illustrations depict all the characters as dogs with human attributes and emotions."

Synopsis:

He makes his disastrous way through the house and the yard, at every turn disobeying his owners, who each time repeat with mounting exasperation, and#8220;Eli, no!and#8221; At the end of the day, thereand#8217;s only one important question left to answer: Do his owners still love him? Of course, in this case the answer is and#8220;Eli, yes!and#8221;

Eli and his antics are depicted in clean, graphic spreads with a fresh and modern palette. Readers will enjoy adding their voices to the call of and#8220;Eli, no!and#8221;

Lisa Brown, August 11, 2011 (view all comments by Lisa Brown)
My boyfriend's mom gave him this for his birthday, so of course I gave it a read. The concept is pretty self-explanatory after a glance at the cover: David does something he's not supposed to; David's mom says, "No!" It's a cute little book with some good laughs to be had, but the best part is the art. Shannon's illustrations have a definite whimsy, but of a sort not typically found in children's books (at least in my experience). And the colors are absolutely fantastic. Highly recommended for anyone with children (your inner child counts).

The terrific illustrations are really the focus of his David series. There are really only a couple words per page - the perfect read for your toddler. Particularly if you have a "busy" child like David.
