Description

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.show more

About Tim Burton

Tim Burton is the creative genius behind Batman, Alice in Wonderland, Edward Scissorhands, and The Nightmare Before Christmas, among others. He began his career at Disney, where his first project was a six-minute tribute to Vincent Price. His second film, the twenty-seven-minute Frankenweenie, was deemed unsuitable for children and never released in cinemas.show more

Customer reviews

If you love Tim Burton's way of thinking, you will absolutely adore this book. It's at times filled with such dry humour and darkness you'll be frowning but laughing at the same time. - Must have little book !show more
