David Gets in Trouble by David Shannon
This is the third installment in the "David" series by David Shannon. In the two previous books David naturally gets into trouble, but it's the adults who are telling him what not to do. In this book it's finally David's turn to explain himself. Phrases like "It's not my fault", "It slipped", and "But Dad said it" all accompany expressive drawings of David's trouble-prone activities. This book has simple, fun text that appeals to children from about 2 1/2 years and older. It has a predictable story line, and just like in the other books all is forgiven by the last page. Where to Buy: Large children's bookstores and independent booksellers alike typically carry the David books. You can also find all of David Shannon's work through on-line retailers like Amazon.
