Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy and Other Stories

The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy and Other Stories - Tim Burton I love this crazy, little book. As an homage to Edward Gorey, the illustrations in this book are so delicious. The bright, vibrant colors stand out in contrast to the dark, macabre poetry. The tales of these unfortunate children really are extremely DARK, so don't let the babies read this one!
