Format: Hardcover
So my girlfriend's niece just turned three and I figured, "Hey, let's buy the kid some picture books!" After all, kids like to hear stories and they like big pictures, right? So we head to the children's section and there's a ton of books meeting said description. Let me be honest, my friends, when I say that children's books are some of the wimpiest literature you can find.
Sure, you can put the kid to sleep reading her some silly story about a giant dog, but I remember being captivated by the stories of a troubled monkey named Curious George who'd get high on ether, set zoo animals free, and report fake fires to the fire department before getting put in jail. Now that was someone I wanted to know more about!
So I find this book about a kid named David who's of the troublesome variety, a real character. Thrill to David sculpting tribal folk art with his dinner. Cheer as he runs free and naked down the sidewalk. Raise your fist in triumph as he picks his nose, all to the protests of his mother. David is the anti-hero we've all been waiting for, as loveable as he is iconoclastic.
Well, I bought the book and FEDEX-ed it to my girlfriend's niece a week ago and it came back yesterday. "Maybe something more reserved would suit her better," read the accompanying note.
"Moms," I thought to myself as I pictured David's sharp-toothed grin, "they just don't know what's up."

I'm a school teacher who is currently working as a substitute, so I encounter this book a lot.

Anybody who has ever raised a little boy will identify with it. David is not a bad little boy at all -- he's just a boy, and as such he's always getting into scrapes. And they can drive us crazy, but would we really have them any other way?

One day I read this book to the kids when a couple of parents were in the classroom, visiting, and the adults laughed just as much as the kids did.

Just one comment here -- someone should do a book like this on raising little girls. They are fast catching up with the boys on behavior antics.

My Two year old girl is completely enamoured with David. After a day of her getting into things, throwing her food around and having shouting matches with me where the only word I seem to say is 'NO', these books speak to her on a level she understands. She laughs all the way through and when we get to the 'yes Davey, I love you ' part, I get the most wonderful cuddles.
