Watch Reese With­er­spoon read The Best Pet of All at the White House!

I am such a lucky man! I get to make my liv­ing writ­ing and illus­trat­ing books for young peo­ple. Wel­come to my web­site where you can read about my books, dis­cov­er what I was like as a kid, and even try your hand at some of my puzzles.

What’s New with David?

Here are a few of the things I’ve been up to lately:

  • Minnesota Book Award
    Win­ning the Min­neso­ta Book Award with Mike Wohnout­ka for How to Apol­o­gize.

Mike Wohnout­ka and I are hap­py to announce our new begin­ning read­er, See the Dog: Three Sto­ries About a Cat, a fol­low-up to our Geisel-win­ning book See the Cat. It has already received two starred reviews, and we are delighted!

Watch Mike give me a les­son on How to Apol­o­gize!

And don’t for­get our new pic­ture book, How to Apol­o­gize, a humor­ous guide­book that pro­vides plen­ty of exam­ples of how (and how not!) to say “I’m sorry.”
