This is a very, very, very quick read - I finished it in under an hour - but entertaining non the less. With the morbid style we've come to expect from Burton, he gives a collection of poems that are almost disturbingly simple. I particularly liked Mummy Boy and Toxic Boy - or Roy, as his friends call him.

I would recommend this book to any Burton fan, or anyone who is into... odd... types of books.

Product details 128 pages William Morrow & Company - English 9780688156817 Reviews:
"Synopsis" by , From breathtaking stop-action animation to bittersweet modern fairy tales, filmmaker Tim Burton has become known for his unique visual brilliance — witty and macabre at once. Now he 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 (mostly anyway).
