Tuesday Trivia

Richard Lederer, in Literary Trivia, is fond of title titles. No, I'm not stuttering. Richard Lederer loves puns, and there's just something punny about a title with a title in it.

Can you feed Richard Lederer's appetite for puns, by naming the author of these "Titled titles?"

A Connecticut Yankee in KING Arthur's Court
The Once and Future KING
The Return of the KING
The African QUEEN
The Little PRINCE

Again, no hints this week. If you need help, check the library catalog!

Here are the answers to last week's trivia questions:
(Also from Richard Lederer's Literary Trivia)

Edgar Allan Poe: The Black Cat
Ernest Hemingway : Hills like White Elephants
Herman Melville:White Jacket (Not the one you were thinking of, I bet!)
Jack London: White Fang
Richard Wright: Black Boy
