Audible Editor Reviews

With a charming twang, renowned storyteller Donald Davis delivers two improbable tales from his childhood. In both stories, Davis's mother is the victim of a practical joke but emerges as the victor. In the first tale, she apparently is able to summon (with her forefinger) the forces of the universe to exact retribution on our hapless narrator. In the second, she gets the better of her brother-in-law, who is cornered into buying a lavish present for the women of the family. Davis does not so much weave a tale as spin a web. Kids will be caught before they even know it.

Publisher's Summary

We all have our personal phobias and white-knuckle moments. The title story of Irrational Fear tells of Davis's mother's fear of snakes and the way she eventually got even with him for making fun of her. (She always came out on top.)
The second story, "The Red Coat", tells why his father and his father's brother-in-law finally stopped playing Christmas tricks on their sisters and wives.

Here's another hilarious send-up from one of America's favorite storytellers.
