Since I've been playing with the scanner lately, I decided to share this 3-page story from Uncle Arthur's Bedtime Stories. I read these over and over as a child, and sort of realized they were strange and creepy (half of them are religious, the other half are about ambiguously named children learning how to be good). There's even a story about a little girl praying to find her mitten so her father won't beat her. Anyway, this is (to my knowledge) the only one to feature an illustration of a dead child:
