The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy Hardback
by Tim Burton
This title presents twenty-three illustrated gothic tales from the dark corridors of the imagination of Tim Burton.
Burton - the creative genius behind "Batman", "Edward Scissorhands", "Mars Attacks!", "Beetlejuice", "Nightmare Before Christmas", "Alice in Wonderland" among others - gives birth to a cast of gruesomely sympathetic children: misunderstood outcasts who struggle to find love and belonging in their cruel, cruel worlds.
His lovingly lurid illustrations evoke both the sweetness and tragedy of these hopeful, yet hapless beings.
