The Adventures of Zig and Zog
We know where Cloud Cuckoo Land comes from, though it is more ancient than a lot of people think. So I started doing some research. Albania once had a ruler called King Zog.

The book belongs to the Choose Your Own Adventure series, whereby the reader becomes the hero and makes choices about the development of the story as they read, turning to different pages according to their choices. On page is one of many possible endings of the story, and sees the reader in the consulting room of a psychiatrist and hypnotist, who is swinging a chain in front of the hero to put him or her into a hypnotic trance.
