Bad Island (Rotten Island)


Monsters live happily on an ugly island…until a flower arrives and destroys their perfect cauldron of rottenness.

Over time I expect this blog will contain the entire William Steig library. Steig is the rare children’s author who combines engaging storytelling with pathos, wicked humor, and a love of language that intrigues children rather than intimidating them. Rotten Island, originally published as Bad Island, is the story of an island paradise…for monsters.
