From "The Watchers of the Night" by James Thurber:

As for the lure of alliteration, from Piers Plowman through Pride and Prejudice and The Pit and the Pendulum to Peyton Place there are hundreds, if you want to lie there hunting titles.

Peter Pan
The Pickwick Papers
The Pied Piper
The Pilgrim's Progress
The Pirates of Penzance
The Prince and the Pauper
The Princess and the Pea
Rumpole and the Primrose Path

Hrm. I don't think I can list anymore without resorting to such lowbrow cheats as PMS Pinafore or The Possibility of Peeing.
