Bad Island wreaks havoc on what should have been a fun family vacation.

Highly praised all over. Not my favorite.

TenNapel did create an interesting family dynamic; the parts with them work the best.

(view spoiler)

Plenty of reviews--here and elsewhere--mark this as low as upper elementary. Not so sure about that. Plenty of parts are violent and the illustrations reflect that. Doubt I'd go below 7th.

Emilia P dead snake was my favorite part!

Jess Maybe it's because I've never had a pet other than fish, but the entire time I just wanted it to go away. :)

Emilia P I had snakes, you see. Sometimes they died. It was actually pretty gross (the death part).

Jess They're very pretty when they're alive...and living somewhere other than near me.
