Praise for Floods 8: Better Homes And Gardens

“Fans will be thrilled to discover more ghoulish secrets about the Floods’ family tree, when they reunite with relatives in Transylvania Waters. Every chapter is loaded with gross character descriptions and illustrations. Thompson uses witty humour throughout the book. The magic spells are simply hilarious. The real highlights are the footnotes, which offer Thompson’s commentary on the main story and his own strange life.”

Oliver Phommavanh, Buzz Words
