The Funniest People in Books, Volume 2: 250 Anecdotes
Print edition. This book contains 250 anecdotes about books and authors, including these anecdotes: 1) When author Peg Bracken was growing up, she and her brother sometimes raided the cookie jar. Understandably, their mother did not want them to ruin their appetite before supper, so sometimes young Peg and her brother would find this note inside the cookie jar: "KEEP YOUR BIG MITTS OFF!" 2) The son of professional writer Arthur Machen once asked him to write a 200-word article on the French Revolution for his school's magazine, but he warned him that the magazine's editorial board-composed of children like himself-would have to find the article worthy before it would be printed. Mr. Machen was gratified when the editorial board deemed his article worthy of being published.
