Praise for The Floods Family Files

“'Capitalising on the current trend of young readers' fascination with all things gothic and spooky, The Floods Family Files is a picture book definitely not for preschoolers! . . . [Kids will] pore over the book for hours to find out more about their favourite Flood Family character. This book is definitely politically incorrect in a fun, ghastly sort of way. Children will be amazed, if not scared silly, by the ghosts, wizards, rats, and other horrible inventions of Colin Thompson's imagination in this macabre and morbidly fascinating book . . . This book is ghoulishly delightful for those so inclined.' BUZZWORDS”
