The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories|
Tim Burton 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 the tragedy of
these dark yet simple beings -- hopeful, hapless heroes who appeal to the
ugly outsider in all of us, and let us laugh at a world we have long left behind.
