    The Gashlycrumbs—
    Those little ones—
    Died all so horribly,
    But such sad woes
    Befall not those
    Supplied with QRV.

    Or, 26 uses for the universal solvent that can save your life!

    Summary

    It came seventeen years ago—and to this day
    It has shown no intention of going away.

    The world is full of far more horrific things that go bump (or crunch) in the night than humans will probably ever realize. If a few residents of a single house cannot manage to do anything other than provoke such forces, surely that need be no one's concern but their own. However, in a remarkable stroke of good fortune, one short, furry being—with a partiality for white tennis shoes—decides to take upon itself the onus of looking after a certain hapless family.

    Or, for every inconvenience the Doubtful Guest causes the household, it saves them from something far worse.

    Summary

    My dear Mary,

    I have just received the most exciting invitation, and, were you here, I am sure you would have been invited too. Although you might not have gone, parties being such frivolous things. (I am only teasing!)

    "Col. Roy and Mrs. Cochran request your presence Thursday, the fifteenth of March, at nine o’clock.

    A séance has been planned."

    I am sure I’ll have a lovely time. I have met Mrs. Cochran once or twice around town, and she is always so charming and beautifully dressed.

    I hope I have not shocked you too awfully!

    Your loving Sister,

    Lyddie

    Summary

    The first annual Gashlycrumb Orphanage Picnic-by-the-Sea came to an abrupt end when a shriek pierced the babble of children building haphazard sand castles in the wet grey sand. Clara lifted her head from the painstaking process of lining her castle with shells, just in time to see a flash of color disappear under a wave fifty feet out to sea.
