Recently I visited McSweeney's in their office on Valencia in San Francisco. They share a space in the building that used to be home to the rather magical little book/art store Little Otsu. They have since moved to Portland, but it reminded me of this lovely little book I purchased there about 6 years ago. It's a book of 50 50 word poems by Nate Denver called Wait You're Not a Centaur. It's full of quirky imagery and thoughts, all accompanied by fun illustrations. What makes this extra special is the accompanying CD of songs. These follow the same fantastical themes as the book and are wonderful.
Three stand out tracks are Snuggle Tummy about a vengeful stuffed toy, 4 Horsemen about Slayer (mp3 here on Nate's site) and The Prince, the Queen and the Corpse about a ballet dancer who does a deal with a demon to get revenge.
