The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy, Paperback / softback Book

The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy Paperback / softback


Twenty-three illustrated gothic tales from the dark corridors of the imagination of Tim Burton.

Burton - the creative genius behind Batman, Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow and Nightmare Before Christmas, among others - now 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.
