Gory but Good Illustrations by Walter Hayn - that one picture of the eyes coming out will stay with me for quite a while!

Betsy would never wash herself
When from her bed she rose,
But just as quickly as she could
She hurried on her clothes.

Not for today's children but great fun when read as an adult, viewing it is a turn of the century moralist collection.
