Duck on a Tractor
Bestselling Caldecott Honor artist David Shannon tells the story of a determined duck who decides to jump on a tractor and drive it around the barnyard and through town, with hilarious consequences! Shannon''s wildly popular, award-winning Duck on a Bike left children begging him to tell them another story about Duck after seeing him pictured alongside a shiny red tractor.

As in the bestselling Duck on a Bike, all the barnyard animals share their humorous comments as they watch Duck do the unthinkable. Then, one by one, they join him on the tractor for a ride! But what happens when Duck drives the big red tractor through town, past the popular diner where all the locals are having lunch? What will those folks really think when they see Duck and all the other animals riding around on Farmer O''Dell''s tractor? Filled with entertaining detail and sly jokes, readers will pore over each picture again and again. Perfect for reading aloud!

HOWUL

release date: Jan 15, 2021
HOWUL
Books are dangerous People in Blanow think that books are dangerous: they fill your head with drivel, make poor firewood and cannot be eaten (even in an emergency). This book is about Howul. He sees things differently: fires are dangerous; people are dangerous; books are just books. Howul secretly writes down what goes on around him in Blanow. How its people treat foreigners, treat his daughter, treat him. None of it is pretty. Worse still, everything here keeps trying to kill him: rats, snakes, diseases, roof slates, the weather, the sea. That he survives must mean something. He wants to find out what. By trying to do this, he gets himself thrown out of Blanow… and so his journey begins. Like all gripping stories, HOWUL is about the bad things people do to each other and what to do if they happen to you. Some people use sticks to stay safe. Some use guns. Words are the weapons that Howul uses most. He makes them sharp. He makes them hurt. Of course books are dangerous. Cover design: Alison Buck

Mr. Nogginbody and the Childish Child

release date: Aug 25, 2020
Mr. Nogginbody and the Childish Child
Best-selling creator David Shannon walks the line between childish and grownupish in his playful and brilliantly accomplished new picture book. When Mr. Nogginbody has to babysit, he thinks it should be straightforward: give the child a chocolate soda so he’ll do his homework. Unfortunately for Mr. N, he follows those steps in that order, and the child refuses to study, teasing his sitter and jumping on the couch just out of reach. Determined to put a stop to the childish shenanigans, Mr. Nogginbody jumps up after him. But he quickly discovers just how much fun being a kid can be. The ovoid hero of Mr. Nogginbody Gets a Hammer, which “has the timeless exuberance and psychological profundity of a great comedy” (Publishers Weekly, starred review), returns in another humorous tour de force from beloved picture book creator David Shannon. Grownupish grownup . . . What in the world does that mean?!”

release date: Sep 03, 2019
Mr. Nogginbody Gets a Hammer
Beloved picture book creator David Shannon introduces a new character in a satisfyingly silly and subversive take on a familiar parable. If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. After snagging his toe, Mr. Nogginbody makes a visit to his local hardware store in search of solutions. Armed with a shiny new hammer, he successfully fixes the nail protruding from his floor. But the satisfaction of his first repair carries him away, and he figures that anything resembling a nail—from a lamp switch to a fire hydrant—can be fixed with a good whack. The results are predictably and theatrically disastrous, until Mr. Nogginbody arrives at a gentle awakening and recognizes that not everything is a nail.
