Synopses & Reviews
A light-hearted companion to the Caldecott Honor Book No, David! David's activities in school include chewing gum, talking out of turn, and engaging in a food fight, causing his teacher to say over and over, "No, David!"
"The exaggerated shapes and slightly cartoonish poses of an array of students in all-too-familiar situations will have youngsters crowding together over the book at recess." Publishers Weekly
"The wonderfully wacky illustrations are drawn from a young child's visual point of view, too. The pages are filled with high-energy lines and eye-popping color. Teachers, parents and kids will all enjoy renewing their friendship with spiky-haired David in his latest adventure." Children's Literature
David's teacher has her hands full. From running in the halls to chewing gum in class, David's high-energy antics fill each school day with trouble-and are sure to bring a smile to even the best-bahaved reader.
