The Floods: the great outdoors by Colin Thompson

Random House, 2008. ISBN 9781741662535;
(Age: Middle and Upper Primary) This is the sixth story of the Flood family and their adventures but the stories do not need to be read in sequence. The Floods are a family of Wizards who would like to be more human. They decide to take a family holiday with their human neighbours and they do try to fit in at Port Folio, but there are some things that take a bit of getting used to Ė like not using magic to win the sandcastle competition! A funny story that students who enjoy a sense of the ridiculous will enjoy.
