HERE IS A BOOK of fun and laughter for all the family. It is a collec­
tion of gay stories, amusing, real adventures, bright, sparkling verse,
and rollicking cartoons.
Here is an illustrated humor anthology that bends over back­
wards to avoid the dated humor of yesteryear while still remem­
bering the ageless humor of such master storytellers as Mark
Twain, O. Henry and Frank R. Stockton.
Our compilers have remembered that too many short humorous
selections read at one sitting are too much, and have therefore, for
the most part, included longer short stories of wide appeal. A num­
ber of these stories have never before appeared in anthologies,
while others are well-known. But new or old, Tish, Constable
Sam, Beauty, My Next Girl, Willy's Vision, young Joey, the twins,
Eileen and Ruth, and all the others are a parade of characters
guaranteed to delight and amuse laughter-loving Americans.
All members of the family are invited to partake of this book for
leisure moments in their often serious, busy lives; and we hope you
will all find this book a festival of fun, worthy of a permanent place
on the bedside table.
The last section of the book is filled with anecdotes collected by
Bennett Cerf. A toastmaster will revel in these amusing stories and
everyone will enjoy them.
