A New York Times bestseller!
An Amazon Best Children's Book of the Month 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, 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.

This book talks all about a bad seed why he’s the bad seed what bad things he does to other people and how they talk about him behind his back. The last couple pages say how he’s trying to make improvements but he still a bad seed just not that bad. Written by someone with no educational or therapeutic background. It would be a great way to give a kid a phobia. This is a review by someone with two masters in education.
In the scary world, we live with school shootings being carried out by teens with complex issues, this book provides food for thought and promotes possibilities of change!
My first-grade students LOVE this book. It is in "Our Favorites" bin to be read over and over.
Thank you Jory John! This is now one of my all time favorites and I will be reading it and promoting it year after year in my classroom! I cannot say enough positive words about this story. Buy it, you won't be disappointed!

It takes an abrupt turn at the very end, but with no explanation as to why the little seed decides to make better choices. It was just not at all what I hoped. I will be returning or passing along to the public library.
