It Looked Like Spilt Milk is a children's picture book written and illustrated by Charles Green Shaw. Originally published in 1947, the illustrations are a series of changing white shapes against a blue background. The reader is asked to guess what the shape is or whether it is just "spilt milk". The white shapes include a rabbit, a pig, a birthday cake, a tree, a squirrel, a mitten, and a great horned owl.
A Scholastic Corporation edition was published in 1989. A board book version was published in 1993. An audio cassette version was published in 1988 and has the narration of Peter Fernandez with the music heard at the beginning and end and read without music.
