This mournful tale of petite Charlotte Sophia’s catastrophic short life is classic Edward Gorey. Orphaned, the poor child is bullied by schoolmates and ruffians alike, surviving only by the skin of her baby teeth. Even her doll suffers a gruesome end. The Hapless Child is widely regarded as one of Gorey’s best books: you will enjoy weeping for Charlotte Sophia again, and again, and again.
