What is the name of this book?

My brother just had a baby (the first in our family). And I would like to give him the same book to read to his son that my father read to us as children (in the later 80s). Unfortunately my memory is unclear on many things related to the book. So, hopefully someone with a good memory can help out! [more inside]

What books should I buy my math professors?

I recently applied to grad schools, and I got recommendations from three of my math professors. I'd like to get them all books as a "thank you" but I'm stumped on which specific titles to get two of them. The books don't have to be overtly math-related (thought it wouldn't hurt), but I think they probably shouldn't be completely orthogonal. If it helps, the book that I did buy is Michael Ruhlman's latest food book Ratio. [more inside]
