Default Diagram Prize for oddest book titles

Face it, some books just have ridiculous-sounding titles. Like The Anger of Aubergines or Highlights in the History of Concrete.

The Diagram Prize has been celebrating odd book titles for years. Read an article about it, and peruse a gallery of prize-winning book covers.

Well a few of them are certainly some of the grossest titles I think I have ever read, like knitting with Dog hair...YUCK!!! But for me, who has wanted to learn another language...why didn't I think about * Italian without words*, I've got that one learned already...
"To the Horsehead Nebula and back we shall make beautiful music"..."Together!"

The stories of childhood leave an indelible impression,and their author always has a niche in the temple of memory from which the image is never cut out to be thrown on the rubbish heap of things that are outgrown and outlived........Howard Pyle
