“No, David,” wails the off-stage mother as David reaches for the cookie jar. “No! No! No!” as he makes a swamp out of the bathroom. “Come back here, David!” as he runs naked down the street. Each vivid double-page illustration of this heartwarming and humorous picture book is devoted to a different youthful indiscretion and a different vain parental plea!
Readers will be amused to know that the protagonist’s name is no accident: award-winning writer-illustrator David Shannon wrote the book after discovering a similar effort that he had made, again with himself at the centre of each drawing, at the age of five.
