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.

              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 . . .
