At the age of five, internationally acclaimed picture-book creator David Shannon, wrote and illustrated his first book. On every page were pictures of David doing things he was not supposed to do and these words: No, David! They were the only words he knew how to spell! Many years later, when his mother sent him that book, Shannon was inspired to write and illustrate his now-classic bestseller and Caldecott Honor Book No, David!

Next week he’ll be signing books at The Children’s Bookstore in Roland Park!

Duck on a Tractor

Shannon’s newest book, Duck on a Tractor, is all about a hilarious tractor ride through the farm. All the barnyard animals share their humorous comments as they watch Duck do the unthinkable — drive the tractor. Then, one by one, they join him on the tractor for a ride!

David will be at The Children’s Bookstore from 3:30 PM – 4:30 PM on October 10th.   Stop in on Monday to meet David and pick up signed copies of his many great books! If you can not attend the event, call The Children‘s Bookstore at 410-532-2000 to reserve signed copies of David’s books.
