When author David Shannon was five-years-old, he wrote a story about a little boy who broke all his mother's rules, leading to her often saying "No, David." In 1997, Shannon came across his childhood book in his mother's closet, and re-wrote it using a child-like handwriting and including drawings of his mishaps. In 1999 No, David was a Caldecott Honor Book.
