              The Floods are back in their rightful place as rulers of Transylvania Waters and there is an enormous amount to do to bring the country out of the Dark Ages and into the twenty-first century. What does a country need more than anything to become part of the modern world? Well, it... needs tons of things, including socks, PlayStations, genetically modified food and seventy-three varieties of sausage, but above all else it needs maps. Winchflat's new wife, Maldegarde Ankle, has been appointed Transylvania Waters's first ever Official Map Maker. What she discovers during her cartographic travels will astound, terrify, amuse and intrigue you. In remote caves she will find ancient fossils with enough DNA for Winchflat to re-create long-dead creatures. And in even more remote caves she will find the original inhabitants of Transylvania Waters - a long-lost race of Neolithic Accountants . . .

The rest of the family have noticed that Nerlin is slipping into total Doolallyness u including having an invisible friend called Geoffrey-Geoffrey who warns him not to eat broccoli because it will give him global warming. Only the Old Crones can help Nerlin, so his family travel high up into the mountains to visit them. Will the wisest witch of all, Gruinard, be able to cure him, or is Nerlin doomed to spend his twilight years talking to the wall, wearing a crooked jacket* and incompetence pants? * Which is actually a more accurate description of a straitjacket.
