We have just had delivery of The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & other stories by Tim Burton- as recommended by a dear friend of ours.

The book comprises of twenty-three illustrated gothic tales from the dark corridors of the imagination of Tim Burton. Burton - the creative genius behind Batman, Edward Scissorhands, Mars Attacks! and Nightmare Before Chistmas, 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.

Paperback/ 128 pages/ £8.99
Available in store or via mail order.
