              Watch This Space 1: Out to Launch (EPUB ebook)

              By Thompson, Colin

              Kids adore Colin Thompson's brand of off-the-planet humour. Now here's an off-the-planet series to make them laugh even more! Radius Limpfast is one of the world's richest men. His reality TV shows have made him billions. The next series is always greater than the one before and ...yet he is never satisfied. Then one night, after a particularly creative bacon curry, Radius dreams up the ultimate reality show. No matter whatever anyone else comes up with, they will never be able to top it. Radius is going to send a family to the moon. Limpfast TV will pick an ordinary family, just like yours, build a rocket and a big glass dome and put them all together on the moon. And the whole world will be able to tune in and watch them whenever they like. This will be reality TV at its finest. What could possibly go wrong?

              Floods 12: Bewitched (EPUB ebook)

              By Thompson, Colin

              What happens when the King goes Doolally? Find out in the latest Floods adventure. Everyone gets old, even witches and wizards. Their backs get stiff. Their feet get sore, and their brains go and live far, far away. Not even Nerlin Flood, the King of Transylvania Waters, is immun...e to the curse of old age. The rest of the family have noticed that Nerlin is slipping into total Doolallyness - he even has an invisible friend called Geoffrey-Geoffrey, who warns him not to eat broccoli because it will give him global warming. Will the Old Crones 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.

              Nerlin and Mordonna Flood have seven children, most of whom were not created in the traditional way like you or me, but were made in the cellar, using incredible mystical powers, some very shiny Jamie Oliver saucepans and a small chemistry set. The youngest child, Betty, is a nor...mal, pretty little girl - but she's a useless witch. Her attempts at magic often go wrong, with unexpected yet welcome results. The next-door neighbours should've known better than to rob a family of witches and wizards. But they did, and they're about to find out what the Floods do to bad neighbours.

              The fourth book in Colin Thompson's brilliantly funny series about a family of witches and wizards who might be living in your town. The youngest child in the Flood family, Betty, is a pretty little girl, who looks quite normal - unlike some of her brothers and sisters. She goes ...to the normal primary school down the road and she even has a normal best friend, Ffiona Hulbert. But Betty is not normal - she is a witch. When Bridie McTort, the school bully, starts throwing her weight around, Betty knows exactly what to do. And when Ffiona's dad gets bullied at work, Betty knows how to fix that too. Meanwhile, Winchflat Flood has been watching old Frankenstein movies and has decided he wants to build a human of his own. Praise for The Flood series 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
