Spencer has too many toys. He has robots, puzzles, board games, stuffed animals, and plastic action figures. Toys spill out of every drawer and closet and clutter the floor of every room. Spencer's house has become hazardous. Something has to be done! Spencer tries to persuade his mother to let him keep them all—because every single toy is his favorite. In the end, however, it's not a store-bought toy but the give-away box itself that captures Spencer's attention.

About the Author

Inspired by his own experiences as a child (and the drawings he did when he was little), David Shannon's books perfectly capture how hard it can be to do the right thing. An internationally acclaimed author and illustrator, Shannon has always been an artist. "I've drawn since I could hold a pencil, or a crayon," he says. At the age of five, he drew pictures of himself doing all the things he wasn't supposed to be doing. It was this work that became the inspiration for his Caldecott Honor Book No, David!
