"After the ceremony Alexander hung his little playmate Victoria in the woods nearby." This book tells the story behind the alleged hanging and focuses on the relationship between the children Alexander and Victoria before and after the event. The book assumes the format of a traditional picture storybook with text to the left and drawings to the right. The book is square-shaped, brutal, unemotional and cruel.
