A majority of this book is dedicated to autobiographical compositions "written" by Daniel Striped Tiger, Lady Elaine Fairchilde, King Friday XIII, X the Owl, and Grandpere.


Additionally, a play is included for children to perform as well as sheet music to several popular songs from the Children's Corner.
