If you know me, you know i have a probably unhealthy love for Lin-Manuel Miranda. I adore all his work and his general attitude has inspired me to no end. So when i heard about Gmorning, Gnight! being released, i was absolutely thrilled to have a book that was completely written by him.
I’ve been wanting to read a graphic novel for quite some time, one of length and a stand alone that i can really get in to. On a recent trip to Waterstones, i found This One Summer, which looked absolutely adorable and something that i’d really want to read pretty quickly. Luckily, my friend bought it and lent it to me, win win for me!
Title: The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy and Other Stories
Author: Tim Burton
Genre: Fiction, Horror, Short Stories
Publisher: Faber & Faber
Publication Date: 18th November 2004
Summary : Twenty-three illustrated gothic tales from the dark corridors of the imagination of Tim Burton. Burton – the creative genius behind Batman, Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow and Nightmare Before Christmas, 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.

It doesn’t seem that long ago that the world went crazy over the illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone. We also all turned to our bookshelves and made space for the next seven of them (am I right?) We all knew that there would be a new illustrated book hitting the shelves this year, but we were not expecting the art work to be released this early!
