"When David gets in trouble, he always says . . . 'NO! It's not my fault! I didn't mean to! It was an accident!'" Whatever the situation, David's got a good excuse. And no matter what he's done "wrong," it's never really his fault.

Soon, though, David realizes that making excuses makes him feel bad, and saying he's sorry makes him feel better. Once again, David Shannon entertains us with young David's mischievous antics and a lighthearted story that's sure to leave kids (and parents) laughing.

            I read this to my reading buddy, Fiona. She loved it! I like to. Basically, David gets in trouble, then tells a lie, though sometimes he's telling the truth. And at the end of the book, he admits he did it.
