Children's author and illustrator David Shannon appears at the National Book Festival.
Speaker Biography: David Shannon began his career illustrating books for other authors. However, he soon found he had his own stories to tell, as in the Caldecott Honor book "No David!" -- based on pictures he drew of himself at the age of 5 doing all the things he wasn't supposed to be doing. He is the illustrator and author of more than 20 books for children, including "David Goes to School" and "David Gets in Trouble" -- both best-sellers. His latest is "Too Many Toys" (Scholastic/Blue Sky Press, 2008). He lives in Los Angeles.
