Two very funny stories from one of my favorite storytellers.

In the first story, Davis tells of the extreme antics his eight-year-old self engaged in to try to avoid getting a typhoid shot.

In the second story, the six-year-old Davis has some confusion over some of the different ways the term, "take care of him," are used, and getting his tonsils removed.

We have listened to most of the Donald Davis audio books available at our library. I like them because they are interesting to me and to Jay and the children. They are short, which makes them easy for car rides. These are good old-fashioned humorous stories about growing up. Donald Davis is a great story teller, and the material is clean.

I love Mr. Davis. I remember going to a doctor whose office was in an old house. I have enjoyed all of Mr. Davis' books.
