Item description for David Se Mete en Lios by David Shannon & Teresa Mlawer...
"When David gets in trouble, he always says . . . 'NO! It's not my fault! I didn't mean to! It was an accident!'" Whatever the situation, David's got a good excuse. And no matter what he's done "wrong," it's never really his fault.
Soon, though, David realizes that making excuses makes him feel bad, and saying he's sorry makes him feel better. Once again, David Shannon entertains us with young David's mischievous antics and a lighthearted story that's sure to leave kids (and parents) laughing.

Perfect book for teaching Spanish to kids Feb 15, 2007
I teach Spanish to a class of ten 6 year-olds and this book held their interest week after week. It is highly entertaining and there is never more than one sentence per page. It provided us with vocabulary that we studied and used in other situations. I wish every book by David Shannon were translated into Spanish but we've only got David goes to School (David va al colegio) and David gets in Trouble (David se mete en lios). Alice the Fairy has been translated as Alicia el hada, but is a bit advanced for beginners. Its large pages make it easy for all to see when it's held up but it is cheap since it's a paperback!
Beautiful illustrations but not much of a story Jan 15, 2005
This book doesn't have much of a story line but it has really beautiful illustrations. It's not really a bedtime book but would work well for interacting with a child. It basically shows the many ways David can get in trouble. It's completely in Spanish. I would not give this book to a little one who would tear it easily because it's paperback.
