David Gets in Trouble. By David Shannon. When David gets in trouble, he always says. . . No! It’s not my fault! I didn’t mean to! It was an accident! Do I have to? I forgot! My dog ate my homework! I couldn’t help it! I was hungry! But she likes it! It slipped! But Dad says it! Excuse me! No, it wasn’t me! Yes! It was me! I’m sorry. I love you, mom.
