Biography & Memoir • 57 mins. • Abridged • © 1999

A lovely violin piece introduces Davis's story about a boy's life before and after he acquires braces in a small town in North Carolina. As narrator, Davis captures each word to perfection, whether he's drawing out the word "braces" to make it sound like a bad word or telling the story about braces and teeth rusting together, which he delivers through clenched teeth. When the boy endures a plaster cast in preparation for his braces, the experience is dragged out in Davis's presentation. Adding to the mirth is a whimsical account of what could happen to a braces wearer during a thunderstorm. Everyone--even those about to get braces--will laugh at this most enjoyable visit to the dentist ever. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2015]
