Watch Reese With­er­spoon read The Best Pet of All at the White House!

I am such a lucky man! I get to make my liv­ing writ­ing and illus­trat­ing books for young peo­ple. Wel­come to my web­site where you can read about my books, dis­cov­er what I was like as a kid, and even try your hand at some of my puzzles.

What’s New with David?

Here are a few of the things I’ve been up to lately:

  • CeCe Bell and David LaRochelle
    Pre­sent­ing with the amaz­ing Cece Bell at the Gaithers­burg Mary­land Book Festival

“After hav­ing two new pic­ture books pub­lished in 2023, I am thrilled to have two more books com­ing out in 2024. Both are illus­trat­ed by my tal­ent­ed and good friend Mike Wouh­nout­ka.

In May, Go and Get with Rex was pub­lished; in Sep­tem­ber, Mr. Fox’s Game of No! will be released. For those of you who know how much I love play­ing games, you won’t be sur­prised that both books involve games that chal­lenge the read­er to play along.

And don’t for­get my oth­er recent books: 100 Mighty Drag­ons All Named Broc­coli, See the Ghost: Three Sto­ries About Things You Can­not See, and How to Apol­o­gize.”
