Yes - but admit it - we all love a bad influence once in awhile :)

We first read about David in David Shannon's award winning book "No David" roughly 5 years ago. This book was so well loved I just had to get the next one "David Get's in Trouble". The first book has a monologue by David's Mother which primarily consists of the word "No" with a few variations. This book tells David's side of the story, but once again David is in trouble from the word go --- or should I say no?

This book begins with a crude childlike drawing of David with small eyes, sharp teeth and a halo over head and text telling us what David says when he gets in trouble. Now David is really not a bad a child, at least not in my opinion - but trouble is his constant companion. It all begins with a quick trip on his skateboard across the front room - and naturally a few accidents along the way. Most of David's trouble is accidental - or just forgetfulness - he even forgets to put his trousers on before school one day. The one truly naughty event is when he pulls the poor cats tail saying "But she likes it"! The illustration makes quite clear that the cat most certainly does not enjoy this treatment, and I made a point of telling my children - we don't really pull animals tails because it would hurt them. But for the most part the book shows the types of problems most children get into - making messes, saying bad words, and not wanting to eat what Mom has cooked for tea.

The text is also very simple. except for the first page - which has two lines each page has only one very simple sentence written in large black crayon letters. My children have both had this memorised by the age of two and can point out the words as they "read" the book along with me.

I discovered this book in the library and laughed all the way to the end. Despite the book 'first impression illustrations' (that the book is aimed at early readers), I shared it with year 3/4/5 children and they loved it. The story prompted a discussion re thoughts and feelings 'when we get into trouble,' which concluded in reflective acceptance that children 'gradually learn from their mistakes'. I had to buy my own copy and look forward to reading more of the David series...

Still a treat. 22 Oct. 2002
By sapna - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is definitely not as entertaining as the original "No, David!" or even "David goest to school" but if you are like my kids and me, a David fan, you will still get some enjoyment out of it. Overall, like the previous books, it still manages to express the magic of childhood: the right to make mistakes, expect forgiveness and mosty importantly, love.

Excuses, Excuses..... 3 Oct. 2002
By Roz Levine - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Irrepressible David is back in all his little boy glory, and as he tells us on the title page, "NO! It's not my fault!" Whether he's skateboarding into furniture, making a silly face during class pictures, pulling the cat's tail, or eating the dog's biscuits, burping loudly at meals, sneaking a taste of icing off the cake before dinner, or saying bad words, he's got a logical answer for everything. "I didn't mean to!" "I forgot!" "I couldn't help it!" "No, it wasn't me!" "It was an accident!" "But Dad says it!" Nothing is really his fault, he's just a victim of circumstance. Or is he... Late at night, lying in bed, David has an epiphany, "Yes! It was me!" and apologizes to his mother as she tucks him, lovingly, back in bed..... David Shannon captures the essence of a busy, take charge preschooler, filled with manic energy, in this sequel to No, David! and David Goes To School. Little ones will easily identify with the trials and tribulations of David's world as he rockets through his day from one mishap to the next. Mr Shannon's exaggerated, bold and bright, childlike illustrations steal the show with marvelous facial expression and hilarious details. David Gets In Trouble begs to be read aloud at story time, and is sure to be an often asked for preschool crowd pleaser.

David Gets in Trouble 20 July 2005
By J. Shuey - Published on
Format: Hardcover
David Shannon's book DAVID GETS IN TROUBLE is an excellent choice for beginning readers. When I read it to my three year old nephew, he likes to participate by reading along with me. The simple text and familiar plot allows young children to realize they are not the only ones who "get in trouble." I especially like the message at the end that no matter what David does, his mother will always love him.

Not as funny 1 Nov. 2002
By E. Kep - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The first 2 David books are hysterical & had my kids rolling on the floor. This one needed some explaining as to why what he was doing was wrong. I was a little disappointed with this one, but a huge fan of the others.

Boys 13 Mar. 2003
By R. Hipple - Published on
Format: Hardcover
My 3 boys and 1 girl love David. I love this book especially. I had personally experienced all of the things David does in this book and it really helps me to find humor in these things and realize that they are children. We all get a chuckle from David and also then realize that David learns from his mistakes.
