9780061131974: The Floods #1: Good Neighbors

At first glance, as long as you are at least a hundred feet away and see them from the back on a dark autumn evening when it's raining, the Floods look like any other family.

They aren't.

About the Author:

Colin Thompson is the award-winning author and illustrator of more than forty books, including the novel How to Live Forever and The Short and Incredibly Happy Life of Riley, winner of the CBC of Australia Picture Book of the Year Award. Born in London, Mr. Thompson currently resides in Bellingen, Australia.



Crab Scrambly's art appears in several books as well as on T-shirts. He resides deep in the bowels of Southern California.

From Booklist:

The Addams Family returns, this time as the Floods, an exceptionally strange family of wizards and witches that includes a beautiful mother, Mordonna; a child completely covered in hair; and Betty, the normal-looking one. While essentially goodhearted, the Floods suffer from the worst neighbors ever. The Dents steal cars, fight, and make so much noise the Floods cannot concentrate on their magic. Mrs. Dent even foregoes searching for her lost son to watch her favorite television show, Mega-Extreme Celebrity Really Dumb Fat Ugly Idiot Loser Makeover (a fair example of the book’s broad humor). Systematically, the Floods eliminate each of the Dents in a variety of ways, mostly benign. Footnotes dot the text but do not always appear on the same page as the superscript numbers. The endnotes include a summary of each character and pet. Middle-graders will enjoy the over-the-top humor, gore, and magic and look forward to others in the planned series. Grades 3-6. --Suzanne Harold
