Description of this Book

The Floods family are on the run! Travel back in time to faraway Transylvania Waters and find out what happened when a lowly drain cleaner called Nerlin Flood fell in love with the royal princess Mordonna. Can the two escape from an explosively angry King Quatorze, the nastiest spies in the land, and the prospect of life down the toilet? Why does their eldest child, Valla, drink blood? Was Satanella really turned into a dog because of an accident with a prawn and a faulty wand? This is your chance to find out how all the Floods children came to be born - or created.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review The Floods is The Addams Family with an edge. Book 1 in the series is funny, irreverent and gross in the way that appeals to boys... This is a book that is certain to grab the attention of many readers who enjoy humour and should be in school libraries. -- Fiction Focus
