Description


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.



About the Author


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.

Praise For…


Shannon’s latest has the timeless exuberance and psychological profundity of a great comedy. In short: nailed it.

A novel hero and a novel way to introduce a new generation to an old saying.

Storytime getting sleepy? FIXED IT!

Children will delight in Mr. Nogginbody’s well-meaning and ridiculous fix-it attempts that yield comical destruction, and readers who take their stories on the sweeter side will be pleased that it ends on a gentle note.

Mr. Nogginbody is a refreshingly flawed hero whose naïve rampage promises plenty of giggles.

The humorous concept and brief text married to hilarious illustrations make this a great choice for story time or one-on-one sharing.

This book captures the cat look. I would know, I have lots of experience with so many people coming to look at me at the store. "The cat walked through with its whiskers, ears, and paws," all very important for cat life.  - Pippi, bookstore cat
