1968 "The Hunkendunkens" by Richard R. Livingston with pictures by Harriet Pincus (Harcourt, Brace & World)

Funny, vintage book about a man who wants a huge family.  Never heard of it before.  The illustrations are very charming.  (They look a little like Maurice Sendak characters.)

1962 "Shirley Temple's Bedtime Stories" Illustrated by J.P. Miller ("Lucky Mrs. Ticklefeather" Artist)
