With their worst enemy on their trail, the Floods family are on the run and in disguise in the seventh book of this hilarious series
While the Floods were on holiday with their human friends the Hulberts, the Hearse Whisperer totally destroyed their home back on Acacia Avenue. So now they're on the run—again! To avoid detection they are, like, totally heavily disguised, man. It's totally far out—the Floods have become hippies! Will they end up living a life of love and peace and singing folk songs about rainbows and sunsets? Will they wear flowers in their hair and hemp sandals on their feet? Yeah, right.
