What Would A Book With This Title Be Like Today?

David Elzey did a piece at the excelsior file on a book called Do You Know What I'm Going To Do Next Saturday? Elzey's recap was laugh-out-loud funny, but he ended up doing a thoughtful analysis of a 1960s era children's book.

He did other posts on books written by the same author, Helen Palmer, but this is the one I read the most carefully. His lead-in "One tow-headed boy's laundry list of what he intends to do includes a good deal of eating and pretty large amount of time hanging out with the Marines. Includes gun play." was beyond my power to resist.
