Our customer reviews

This book is elegant, great for a present! Are you tired about all tim burtonÃ?Æ?â??Ã?â??Ã?´s new work? yeah, i think itÃ?Æ?â??Ã?â??Ã?´s shallow and pop, but this old stories, their first characters, are filled with the gloomy and creepy aura we all loved from that director. A really good light reading gothic poem book :)show more
