Description of this Book

While the Floods were on holiday with their human friends the Hulberts, the Hearse Whisperer totally destroyed their home back in Acacia Avenue. So now they're on the run again...To avoid detection they are, like, totally heavily disguised, man. Yeah, man, it's far out, the Floods have become hippies! Will they end up living a life of love and peace and singing folk songs about rainbows and sunsets? Will they wear flowers in their hair and wear soyabean sandals? Yeah, right.
