No, David! remains a perennial household favorite, delighting children, parents, and teachers alike.  David is a beloved character, whose unabashed good humor, mischievous smile, and laughter-inducing antics underline the love parents have for their children -- even when they misbehave.  Children will find David's outrageously bad behavior both funny and liberating as they see themselves in him.

Age recommendation: 2 to 5 years old
