Bad Island

Bad Island
By Doug TenNapel
GRAPHIX, 2011
Audience: All Teens

From Goodreads:
Something on this island is up to no good . . .

When Reese is forced to go on a boating trip with his family, the last thing he expects is to be shipwrecked on an island-especially one teeming with weird plants and animals. But what starts out as simply a bad vacation turns into a terrible one, as the castaways must find a way to escape while dodging the island's dangerous inhabitants. With few resources and a mysterious entity on the hunt, each secret unlocked could save them . . . or spell their doom. One thing Reese knows for sure: This is one Bad Island.


At first, I didn't think I was going to like this book. Don't judge it by its first ten or so pages. They look weird, but it gets more... normal... sort of. But I really liked it. It has a shipwreck in it. How can you NOT love a book with a shipwreck? Am I right?

The whole thing with Pickles was GENIUS. So well constructed. And I loved figuring out the ending at just the right time. I like Doug TenNapel's books, and you should read them too. Ghostopolis was better, but this one was very fun. I am looking forward to reading Cardboard next!
