From the New York Times bestselling author of the Goodnight Already! series

This is a book about a bad seed. A baaaaaaaaaad seed. How bad? Do you really want to know?

He has a bad temper, bad manners, and a bad attitude. He’s been bad since he can remember! This seed cuts in line every time, stares at everybody and never listens. But what happens when one mischievous little seed changes his mind about himself, and decides that he wants to be—happy?

With Jory John’s charming and endearing text and bold expressive illustrations by Pete Oswald, here is The Bad Seed: a funny yet touching tale that reminds us of the remarkably transformative power of will, acceptance, and just being you. Perfect for readers young and old, The Bad Seed proves that positive change is possible for each and every one of us.

Industry Reviews
"Young readers will find the list of all the seed's offenses amusing, and the illustration of the flies and stench surrounding him (he never washes his hands or feet) is sure to elicit laughter." -- School Library Journal (starred review) "Even the very youngest can follow along as the pictures provide evidence of the seed's bad behavior and the reactions of those around him." -- School Library Journal (starred review) "This is a story that opens up dialogue about our reactions to life experiences, the consequences of our choices, and the chance to make a change for the better." -- School Library Journal (starred review) "This charmingly illustrated book would be a comical read-aloud and useful for class or family discussions about manners, behavior, and reputation." -- School Library Journal (starred review)
