Spoiled Rotten


Spoiled Rotten was first published way back in 1991 as part of Maxwell Macmillan Canada’s Series 2000. In 2002 Maxwell Macmillan ceased to exist, meaning Spoiled Rotten was no longer available.

So I was thrilled when, in  2005 Orca books brought it back to life in a new revised and updated edition as an Orca Currents--short fast-paced novels designed to introduce reluctant readers aged 10-14 into the exciting world of books.

Since 2005 Spoiled Rotten has been reprinted several times and the front cover has morphed and changed along the way. The latest version, with the title in pink, was released in spring 2018.

Spoiled Rotten is a best-seller and a popular TumbleReads book. It is also available as an audio book in Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish, and German through GIRL:IT

The Beginning Idea for Spoiled Rotten came from trips our family used to take on our cabin cruiser up the BC coast to the beautiful waters of Desolation Sound and beyond. Like Jessica, we too took long expeditions following rivers and streams up steep mountainsides in search of the cold mountain lakes that fed them.
