The Flood family go on holiday to the seaside!

The Flood family go on holiday to the seaside!

It isn't just humans who need time off. Wizards do too - and after all the wild adventures the Floods have been through, two weeks at the seaside is exactly what they need. Of course, where the Floods go, trouble is sure to follow. Will Betty use magic to cheat in the sandcastle competition? Why is Winchflat stuck in the sand with the tide coming in? Will Mordonna take revenge when she sees animals being mistreated in the circus?

One thing's for sure. The sleepy town of Port Folio will never be the same . . .

Praise for Floods 6: The Great Outdoors

“The Floods are on their way to becoming a publishing phenomenon . . . For its sly wit and exuberant originality, The Great Outdoors, the latest instalment, deserves to be a bestseller. Any family that has twin boys called Morbid and Silent, who order their steaks “alive” and dig up granny (born in the 1800s) from the garden so she can accompany them on holidays gets my vote.”

Rosemary Neill, Weekend Australian

“Every single picture in this book was very well illustrated and I loved them all ... I recommend it for ages eight and up to read this fantastic and fun book.”

Clare Milross, Year 4, Illawarra Mercury
