My coworker found a pretty beat up copy of this book, by Robert Weinstock:

She looked inside the front cover to find this plea (which I had to document):

I blurred out what I think is the child’s last name.

It was a 2 page message, so I needed 2 shots.

If you can’t read it, is says “JJ Jacques — I love this book so much that can I keep it plees”

None of the librarians were even mad. This is probably the best endorsement an author could get.
