This has got to be one of the cutest images that I’ve found in all the years of running this site. A little girl lays fast asleep on the hearth rug after over-indulging in too much candy. Her toys lay abandoned around her but she maintains a tight hold on what is presumed an empty candy box. This drawing would be super sweet if it was complete at that. But, it is the scruffy little dog begging for some candy of its own that really turns up the cute factor on this vintage drawing of a naughty child.
No illustrator was credited for this drawing or any of the others from the Harper’s Young People of January 13, 1880.
