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 nailfrom a lamp switch to a fire hydrantcan 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.
David Shannon is the creator of the Caldecott Honor–winning No, David! and more than thirty other books beloved by children who “recognize immediately that they have found a kindred spirit” (New York Times). He lives in Los Angeles, California.
