In his folksy Carolina accent Davis tells three stories of childhood suitable for children, but enjoyable by all. In his opening remarks, Davis states that his stories are intended to inspire listeners to connect with their memories of their brothers and sisters. Three stories of brotherly love-or not-start with the birth of a baby with perfect curls and the older brother's solution-a hairdo just like grandpa's fringe. The second story features a series of games that involve tormenting a baby in a playpen, and the last story describes a journey through the cow pies of the pasture. In each tale older brother Donald creates a bit of trouble and receives his comeuppance from a wise dad with a sense of humor.
In Too Much Hair!, Donald Davis focuses on the trouble with little brothers, especially his own. In the title story, he gives his little brother the haircut he badly needs. The next story explains how he came to be permanently fired as his brother's babysitter. The third tale recounts one of the many science projects for which his brother served as Davis's personal chemistry set. These stories will call forth memories from anyone who has had to live with siblings.
