Oh, the excitement of Christmas with all its goodies....cookies, hidden presents, sitting on Santa's lap and sharing your wish list, long lines and snowballs to throw! There are so many opportunities for one joyful, excited little boy to hear the dreaded word....NO! It's No David here and No David there.
How hard it is for the youngest among us to wait out those long days until Santa arrives, to keep hands off the cookies and to avoid the horror of a lump of coal on Christmas morning.
Just like a comedian with perfect timing, David Shannon delivers the contagious excitement of a little boy amidst the rules and regulations of the adult world. The question is, when the great day arrives, will it be coal or will it be wonder? This one will be read time and time again.

The bestselling star of NO, DAVID! turns Christmas traditions upside down with laugh-aloud humor. Readers of all ages will vividly remember trying to peek at hidden gift packages; writing scrolls of wish lists to Santa; and struggling to behave at formal Christmas dinner parties. Always in the background, we know Santa Claus is watching, soon to decide if David deserves a shiny new fire truck or a lump of coal under the tree. From playing with delicate ornaments to standing in an endlessly long line for Santa, here are common Christmas activities--but with David's naughty trimmings. A surefire hit that is destined to be an annual classic.---from the publisher
