The Bad Seed


From New York Times bestselling author Jory John comes the charming story of the Bad Seed, a grumpy and mischievous character who may not be so bad after all.

There is a bad seed. A baaaaaaaad seed. How bad? Do you really want to know?

He lies about pointless stuff.

He cuts in line. Every time.

And he does LOTS of other bad things too.

But what happens when a bad seed doesn’t want to be bad anymore?

Can a bad seed change his baaaaaaaad ways?
