Staff Reviews

For the older set, this graphic novel conjures whiffs of the Incredibles, Iron Giant, and E.T. A shipwreck strands a family on a strange island; can they survive? With fantasy and sci-fi elements, I was gripped to the very end. Fun for 10-12 year old adventurers everywhere!

— Brian, Books Inc. in the Marina


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.
