About The Book:
Written by Tim Borton Illustrated by Tim Borton Published Year 1997
For all its simple humor, The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories is a peculiarly disturbing book about the violence that children suffer. It is illustrated in pen and ink, watercolor, and crayon.
I love this little book, its beautiful; a small harbound book in black and the title in silver writing. The stories are freaky and sad which is to be expected; it is Tim Burton's work afterall.
