"If the Wonders of the World hadn't stopped at seven, Cobble's Knot would have been number eight."
"As the story goes, the original Mr. Cobble wasn't doing too well with the original Mr. Cobble's Corner Grocery at the corner of Hector and Birch. In his first two weeks, all he sold was some Quaker Oats and penny candy."
"Then one morning, as he unlocked the front the door for business, he saw the Knot. It was dangling from the flagpole that hung over the big picture window, the one that said FROSTED FOODS in icy blue-and-white letters. Mr. Cobble got out a pair of scissors to snip it off, when he noticed how unusual the knot was."
And then he got an idea. He could offer a prize to anyone who untangled the Knot. Publicize it. Call the newspaper. Winner's picture on the front page. Business would boom. Well, he went ahead and did it, and if business didn't boom, it must have at least peeped a little, because eons later, when Maniac Magee came to town, Cobble's corner was still there."
"After leaving the Knot outside for a year, Mr. Cobble took it down and brought it out only to meet the challenger."
" 'So you see,' said Amanda, 'if you go up there and untie Cobble's Knot-which I know you can-you'll get your picture in the paper and nooo-body'll mess with you then.' Maniac listened and thought about it and finally gave a little grin. 'Maybe you're just after the prize.' Amanda screeched, 'Jeff-freee! The prize isn't the point.' "
