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

The Best Pet of All

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:

See the Cat: Three Stories about a Dog

Theodor Seuss Geisel Award!

Four starred reviews!

I am thrilled to announce that See the Cat: Three Stories About a Dog received the 2021 Theodor Seuss Geisel Award for "the most distinguished American book for beginning readers published in the United States during the preceding year." The illustrator Mike Wohnoutka and I are still smiling from ear to ear. Look for the sequel, See the Dog: Three Stories About a Cat, to be released in September.

Watch Mike give me a lesson on How to Apologize!

And I am proud to announce our newly released picture book, How to Apologize, a humorous guidebook that provides plenty of examples of how (and how not!) to say "I'm sorry."
