Shorter than a usual Gorey story, but nice.

"When I die I shall go up to heaven like that bird", October 22, 2014

This review is from: THE PIOUS INFANT. A Volume in the Catafalque Works. (Paperback)
One of Edward Gorey's funniest works, telling the story of Little Henry Clump, an irritatingly virtuous tot, given to priggish behaviour - berating boys at play on the Sabbath, or worrying about his sister's soul when she flies into a passion.
However going out on a winter's night "to give his bread-pudding to an unfortunate widow" proves to be his undoing..
Wonderful take-off of Victorian morality tales for children. ( )
