Editorial Reviews

Review

* "The artist's familiar blotchy line and thick opaque paints capture Roy's carefree glee... Roy's raucous absurdity will appeal to beginning readers as well as delighting a storytime crowd." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred reviewPraise for No, David!:A Caldecott Honor BookA New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book of the Year* "In this ode to bad and boisterous little boys... this book is perfect for reading aloud. Children will relish the deliciously bad behavior and the warm and cuddly conclusion." -- School Library Journal, starred review"The illustrations are wonderful, full of good-time trouble-making tomfoolery, borrowing on the energy of children's drawings and the determined strokes of their early attempts at lettering. David is a small, snaggle-toothed piehead whose mischief-for those who don't have to clean up after him-is nothing short of exhilarating." -- Kirkus Reviews"Readers won't be able to resist taking a walk on the wild side with this little rascal, and may only secretly acknowledge how much of him they recognize in themselves." -- Publishers WeeklyPraise for Grow Up, David!:"The illustrations capture both the emotional intensity of David's roller-coaster world and, in hilarious close-up tableaux, a series of brotherly tussles, pranks, domestic disasters, and goofy bids for attention... Nice to see you again, David!" -- Kirkus ReviewsPraise for Good Boy, Fergus!:* "Shannon's mixed-media illustrations, in the style of his David books, crackle with personality. Fergus's expressions and poses will be both funny and familiar to dog lovers, and the predominantly close-up perspective offers an immediacy that makes readers feel included in every second of the tail-wagging action. Paws down, Fergus is one memorable pooch." -- Publishers Weekly, starred reviewPraise for Duck on a Bike:"Shannon serves up a sunny blend of humor and action in this delightful tale of a Duck who spies a red bicycle one day and gets 'a wild idea.'... Add to all this the abundant opportunity for youngsters to chime in with barnyard responses ('M-o-o-o'; 'Cluck! Cluck!'), and the result is one swell read-aloud, packed with freewheeling fun." -- Publishers WeeklyPraise for A Bad Case of Stripes:"The pictures are probably enough to attract young browsers, and the book's irony and wealth of detail may even interest readers in higher grades." -- Booklist"This very funny tale speaks to the challenge many kids face in choosing to act independently." -- School Library Journal

1.0 out of 5 stars No thought process I do not recommend
By Amazon Customer on February 25, 2021
I wanted to like this book because my child likes dogs, but this book is not written well. I know it’s a child’s book, but the whole point of reading to our children is to spark their curiosity and their understanding of vocabulary and language. This book does not do that. To me it just feels like a bunch of words put together quickly to make $$. In other words there is no thought process or heart in this book. Pretty much just the word “dirt” and “Roy” and “digs”
