As he bent down, he saw his own reflection on the surface of the puddle. #BurtonStory 3 Laetitia tweeted on Nov. 22nd, 2010 Withholding his breath, he lightly poked the surface of the puddle.

In his 1997 book of drawings and verse, The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories , Tim Burton imagines a bizarre menagerie of misfits with names like Toxic Boy, Junk Girl, the Pin Cushion Queen and the Boy with Nails in his Eyes. “Inspired by such childhood heroes as Dr. Seuss and Roald Dahl,” writes James Ryan in the New York Times , “Mr. Burton’s slim volume exquisitely conveys the pain of an adolescent outsider. Like his movies, the work manages to be both childlike and sophisticated, blending the innocent with the macabre.”
