When the heroine runs away from home, she brings a suitcase full of books with her that she stole from the town library. She scores points for running away in true book-lover style. The audience gets a peek at the books as the heroine reads them throughout the film. Wes Anderson hired a few animators to bring the books to life, and you can watch the clip narrated by the film's librarian/narrator.
They remind me of books I loved to read when I was 12, and books I still love to read when I pretend I'm 12.
Paul and I may be basing our Halloween costumes off of this movie. Maybe. And it may be because the costumes can can have a dog tied in to them. Maybe. Take a wild guess as to who we will be.
