Not all children were idealized in gift books. Here, a young boy has gotten in trouble at school. He stands pouting in a corner, his shirt ripped, with his book on a bench and his slate shattered into a hundred pieces on the floor. His curly hair and chubby cheeks will not get him out of his punishment this time!
