I need help figuring out some irony in the short story "Little Benjamin" by Laura E. Richards. I don't quite understand it. Please help?

  • English -

    One bit of irony is that the other children in the family complained bitterly about Benjamin, but all professed love and wanted to keep him when their father suggested they send him away.
