AUTHOR EVENT: David Shannon & It's Christmas, David

David

David Shannon, the award-winning artist and best-selling author of It's Christmas, David, makes an appearance in support of his fourth full-length book featuring the irrepressible David.

Reviews
"An unusually funny read-aloud for Christmas." - Booklist

"Shannon's irresistible illustrations show David's emotions careening from hope to anticipation to sadness to joy, with a masterful use of perspective keeping the reader on the same emotional level with the little boy. The touching final page shows David clutching his new fire truck and a note from Santa, with Mom's protective arm around him as always." - Kirkus

"Emotions are easily conveyed, from David's hyper anticipation, to his very real fear that maybe his behavior makes him unworthy of Santa's attention, to the comforting and blissful endpage." - School Library Journal
