Praise for DAVID GETS IN TROUBLE:
"That irrepressible fellow with the Charlie Brown head is back, trailing a whole new slew of disasters in his wake. This memorable character is nothing short of a force of nature, from his scribbled eyes and hair to his shark-sharp teeth." --Publishers Weekly STARRED, 6/24/2002.
"Disarming as he always is-what a blessing he lives on the page and not in our lives." --Kirkus Reviews, 08/01/2002. "The contemporary stylistic art is just right for depicting the boy's antics and his high-energy personality." --School Library Journal STARRED, 09/01/2002. "The humor is always in the art--huge, full-color paintings with plenty of heft that fill up the page. Shannon's artwork is deceptively simple, always centered on the snaggletoothed David."--Booklist STARRED, 09/01/2002.
