The Melancholy Death Of Oyster Boy & Other Stories by Tim Burton is one of the most interesting forms of poetry I have ever read. At first I wasn’t sure if this book was written for children or not but I soon learned that is it NOT! If you’re into the weird and strange art of Tim Burton, you will love this book. His poetry is amazingly morbid dark and gloomy but fantastically creative at the same time. It will give you a little boost of dark humor through the dark winter nights.
