They take some getting used to, but after a while, you’ll want to hug them BUT be careful – many of them have sharp objects sticking out of their bellies. It looked pretty strange because he couldn’t see. The above is a pretty good example of what’s in this book Reading this tiny tome was sort of like taking a prolonged vacation on The Island of Really, Really Misfit Toys.
La melancolica muerte de Chico Ostra : Tim Burton :
The above is a pretty good example of what’s in this book and should tell you whether or not it’s for you. Bad things happen to stick figures and little mummy boys. Children get eaten by their parents and a girl turns into a bed. If you have a fondness for all things misbegotten AND find that fairy tales are not quite disturbing enough, you should have room in your heart for Melonhead and maybe even Jimmy, the Hideous Penguin Boy.

A short collection of macabre poems, illustrated like a children’s book, but aimed more at the YA market, and delightful for dark-thinking adults as well. There are lots of gory things about eyes, stories of non-human children toxic, half robot, half oyster etc and a most inappropriate present from Santa. Occasionally the rhythm doesn’t quite work at the first attempt, but even so, it’s great fun. It is strongly reminiscent of Hilaire Belloc’s Cautionary Tales for Children my review HEREbu A short collection of macabre poems, illustrated like a children’s book, but aimed more at the YA market, and delightful for dark-thinking adults de, well.
His wiry, but colour, illustrations, perfectly complement his dark words.

It’s damned creepy, freaking depressing, laugh out loud funny, and utterly awesome. View all 4 comments. View all 10 comments. I love Tim Burton’s movies for their beautiful cinematography and sense of macabre with a pinch of dark humor.
His poetry is right up my alley, just like the stories of Edward Melancolca who is known to have influenced Burton. Roy, the Toxic Boy To those who knew him -his friends- we called him Roy. To others he was known as that horrible Toxic Boy. He loved ammonia and asbestos, and lots of cigarette smoke. What he breathed in for air would make other people choke!
His very favorite toy was a can of aerosol I love Tim Burton’s movies for their beautiful cinematography and sense of macabre with a pinch of dark humor. His very favorite toy was a can of aerosol spray; he’d sit quietly and shake it, and spray it all the day. He’d stand inside the garage in the early-morning frost, waiting for the car to start and fill him with exhaust. The one and only time I ever saw Toxic Boy cry was when some sodium chloride got into his eye.
One day for fresh air they put mwlancolica in the garden. His face went deathly pale and his body began to harden. The final gasp of his short life was sickly with despair. Whoever thought that you could die from breathing outdoor air?

As Roy’s soul left his body we all said a silent prayer. It drifted up to heaven and left a hole in the ozone layer. How chlco weird is that? You can read the book here it seems to be complete: Toda a gente devia ler: This is a collection of very very short stories which are all written in verse and have an accompanying illustration or illustrations. This whole book dhico written and illustrated by Tim Burton who is one of osra favourite artists and I was very cihco when I stumbled across this on Amazon.
It’s a very small book but it’s a brilliant one and I have to say that it was better than I thought it would be. This collection showcases some of Burton’s weird character ideas and stories and whilst some sto This is a collection of very very short stories which are all written in verse and have an accompanying illustration or illustrations.
This collection melandolica some of Burton’s weird character ideas and stories and whilst some stories such as the Oyster Boy one span a couple of pages in wonderful verse and with a sad and woeful tale, others are purely a line or two with the illustration to make you think and wonder.
None of these stories were cheery, they all have a melancholy sadness or loneliness about them and each of the peculiar creations are misunderstood and isolated. However, the stories are wonderful and funny and entertaining to read and the illustrations just make this book a wonderful one to add to your chhico. I wouldn’t, therefore, recommend this as a book to give to or read to kids, but I would say that the ironic beauty of these stories is certainly worth a go and I loved reading through this book.
I also feel like this book has great re-readability to it and I have no doubt that I will pick this up again someday to re-read and re-experience these sad little tales. I don’t mean to pry, but do you cnico of Heaven? Have you ever wanted to die? It’s the most wondrous and bizarre read I could ever have the pleasure of experiencing. It is also rather emotional, brings out such intense feelings. Trust me, if you ever get the chance upon this book Tim Burton fans, you’re in for a real treat!

This mufrte collection of stories told in verse is as you’d expect from Tim Burton funny, twisted, horrifying, macabre and somehow also rather poignant. The illustrations are marvellous too. Personal fave, The Pincushion Queen: Life isn’t easy for the Pin Cushion Queen. When she sits on her throne pins dell through her spleen. The girl who turned into a bed!
It happened that day she picked up a strange pussy willow. Her head swelled pa white and a soft as a pillow. Through her organs and torso she sprouted like wings, a beautiful set of mattress and springs. It was so terribly strange that I started to weep. But at least after that I had a nice place to sleep.

Un librito delicioso lleno de freaks para los que alguna vez se han sentido unos freaks. Muy creepy y muy siniestro, tal y como me gustan las cosas. I’m embarrassed to say that I didn’t even know this collection of short stories existed until recently.
The Melancholy Death of Chjco Boy and Other Short Stories was full of quirky illustrations and a mixture of hilarious and morbid poems.
I definitely chuckled a few times. This was a perfect collection to read during the month of October and I highly recommend it to all those who love the work of Tim Burton!
Somewhat sad, very very lx, yet so sweet and lovely. Quite a heart-warming gem. I met a girl who had many eyes. She was really quite pretty and also quite shocking! We talked about flowers, and her poetry classes, and the problems she’d have if she ever wore glasses.
It’s great to know a girl who has so many eyes, but you really get wet when she breaks down and cries. Tim Burton is a mystery to me, Quite literally.
When I was a little kid I never knew that he’s the one who built Wonka’s chocolate factory and said Beetlejuice thrice. Now, I have this really dear friend who sometimes pretends to be Tim. I never understood cyico obsession and why he’s possessed by this Tim until I read this tome. But I just loved how simple the work was and the way it mimed these Tim Burton is a mystery to me, Quite literally.
But I just loved how simple the work was muerhe the way it mimed these rhymes. The children were all cute and cuddly But I knew that something was terribly wrong.
