What Cussing Children's Book Is This!?!?!

Scarf: Thrift store
Top: Thrift store
Blazer: Old Navy clearance
Pants: UO clearance
Shoes: Thrift Store

The pictures didn't turn out terribly well, my apologies. I don't know how familiar you all are with this books illustrations so I will be super impressed if you guess the book!!!
Most people know it from it's recent resurrection as a I adore.

Do you know what book it is?

Do you?

Today's hint:

There is "cussing" but no vulgarity.


I don't know about you but the book cover below is FANTASTIC!
(coincidence? I think not)
I would very much like it as a poster for The Kidlets bedroom.

Lovies and Lickity-splits (whatever they may be)


PS. 4 posts in one day??? Pigs just might be flying.

And I think they did a lovely job interpreting it into a movie, don't you? Sigh, Wed Anderson!

Yeah, I'm having so much fun with the Children's books as outfits, though I'm starting to run out of ideas. Please let me know if you have any suggestions! :-)

And thanks for stopping by!

I just found your blog through Tess at Quintessentially Quirky and I love it. I adore this little challenge you have made for yourself! I too am a great admirer of children's books and was thinking of doing something similar, but you beat me to it!

This is so cute and retro! I only heard of the Fantastic Mr. Fox from the film, but it sounds like an interesting book!
