After reading this beautifully presented book in a very short time I just didn't want the adventure to end, I must say Doug Tennapel never seems to disappoint me having read many of his books his appeal is never lost. As always with Tennapel graphic novels "Bad Island" is a great combination of believable writing complimented with great art work and a fun spirited heartfelt story making a pleasurable reading experience all round.
As there is no description I will give a quick summing up of the tale of "bad Island" taken from the back of the book:
"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 swarming with weird plants and animals. What starts out as a bad vacation turns into a frantic adventure, as the castaways must find a way to escape while dodging the island's lethal 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."
Lastly I would recommend this book to all ages "bad Island" is a beautifully crafted tale of one family's struggle to survive their new found surrounding and each other, I thoroughly enjoyed it to the end.
