Suffer Little Children



V is for Victor squashed under a train.

Edward Gorey's Gashlycrumb Tinies, 26 small children perish in rhyming couplets.

  1. Daughter has loved all things Edward Gorey since childhood, but Gashlycrumb Tinies is her absolute fave. If I recall correctly, her favourite letter is e, for Ernest who choked on a peach. I prefer n, for Neville who died of ennui.
