Collection includes files for five of the seven authors that Cott interviewed for this book: Theodore Geisel, Astrid Lindgren, Iona and Peter Opie, William Steig, and P.L. Travers. The two interviewees not represented are Chinua Achebe with whom Cott apparently dealt in person or by telephone, and Maurice Sendak as the chapter in the book is a reprint of the original Rolling Stone piece. Also present in the collection are three periodical issues: Rolling Stone dated December 30, 1983 containing Cott's article on Maurice Sendak, "King of All the Wild Things," and the two issues of The New Yorker magazine containing pre-publication versions of the Lindgren (February 8, 1983) and Opie (April 4, 1983) profiles.
