Not-So-Bad Island

Bad Island

Author:  Doug TenNapel

A family boat vacation gone WAAAY wrong is the premise for Bad Island.  Storm, boat crash, and one really bad island ensue.  Like Ghostopolis before it, Bad Island has graphics that I know will appeal to my fifth grade readers, and the relationships between family members will be easy for those same readers to relate to.  My favorite character is the younger sister, who has a pet snake that she sneaks on vacation and keeps close, even after the thing is dead and smelly.  I suspect that many of my students will like the monsters best–yeah, Bad Island is full of monsters.  Surprise.
