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

              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.
