the bad seed

A hilarious tale about a seed—a bad seed. A VERY bad seed.  One who never returns shopping carts to where they belong, is perpetually tardy to everything, and a line cutter, amongst other baaaaaad things.  But our little guy's history was not always this seedy.  We learn about his humble, simple and unremarkable upbringing on a happy sunflower bed and then what happens one fateful day when the flower droops and the petals drop.  And then the day that everything...went...dark for our tiny seed.  A hearty, animated and side-splitting read aloud for sure.  Smartly written with dynamic illustrations.

The Bad Seed was written by Jory John, illustrated by Pete Oswald and published by HarperCollins.  Click here to watch the book trailer for The Bad Seed!
