Recommended for: Burton Fans, Everyone

Those who are fans of Tim Burton will find this a good addition to to their bookshelf. Whether you take the poems (and their typical Burtonesque illustrations) at face value as humurous depictions of characters, or look deeper and see the characters as an anthology of what it is to be an adolescent in modern society, it makes no difference. While they aren't groundbreakingly good poems that will change the way you read poetry forever, they make for a very good read time and time again.
