In an homage to Isaac Watts (1674 - 1748), and English minister and hymn writer, this little book has verses and illustrations all which contain a reference to Q.R.V., which means different things in different verses. Typically macabre content and illustrations for a Gorey book. An example, "Inside the mound the diggers found all sorts of strange debris, And heaven knows how many toes embalmed with Q.R.V."
