Title: The Hapless Child.
Author: Edward Gorey.
Genre: Fiction, surrealist fiction, death.
Country: U.S.
Language: English.
Publication Date: 1961.
Summary: A sorry tale of petite Charlotte Sophia's catastrophic, short life. The poor child is orphaned and treated mercilessly by schoolmates and ruffians alike, and only barely survives - for a time, anyway - by the skin of her baby teeth.

My rating: 8.5/10.
