Davis Marbie preview – Oliver has an incurable case of bedhead, and no amount of brushing, primping, combing, wetting, spraying, gelling, or fussing is going to cure it. He lives in Port Townsend, Washington, and has three sons and two cats. This story is a humorous take on a bad hair day gone awry that readers can personally relate to.
