This book is full of mad ideas and sometimes disturbing themes, but overall these poems are easy to read, enjoyable and enhanced by the wonderful illustrations provided by Tim Burton. It is something that I could easily read just a few poems out of if I didn't have much time, or something that I will definitely be re-reading in its entirity at some point in the future.
Robot Boy is my favourite of the collection due to the humour and interesting accompanying images. This is not the typical type of book I would pick up The poems are wicked and creepy and I enjoyed them just a little too much :P Its like once you are done reading, you just can't help but question Tim Burton's mental state in a good way?
This was a collection of poetry with illustration by Tim Burton. The poems are all very off the wall, some are slightly disturbing, and most are darkly humorous. I would recommend for older teen to adult because of the content there are a few poems with explicit sexual themes. I am a huge Tim Burton fan and ended up enjoying this a lot. The majority of poems talk about strange and troubled children and the weird ailments or situations that haunt them.
All in all they were well done, occasionally made me laugh out loud, and were definitely unique. The sketches are very Burtonesque and their style matches the poems well.
While I did enjoy this, it might be something that's better read bit by bit over time. I sat down and read it all in one sitting and the poems despite their quirkiness actually got to be a bit repetitive. Overall this is a must for all you Tim Burton fans out there.
It's a beautifully put together book and is full of strange and quirky poetry and illustration by Burton. Haha, what can I say about this book let? Not at all what I thought it would be when I picked up this book, but it turned out to be a real treat.
Something to read over and over again in the years to come, I'm sure! Any fan of Burton, or quite possibly even Gorey, will appreciate this collection of poems and illustrations. Imagine if you will a book by Shel Silverstein, only this time he's clinically depressed. We meet all manner of ill-fated characters, some of whom get their own spin-offs such as Stain Boy. Burton has written a short poetic tale for each character, and sometimes two or three, and included accompanying illustrations to drive the point home.
This is a children's book not intended for emotionally stable children. This book is chock full of Burton's dark and depressing sense of humor and style, and is sure to please fans of his work. Recommended for fans and those with a similar sense of humor. Here at Walmart. Your email address will never be sold or distributed to a third party for any reason.
