Fred loves it when his grandmother comes to town from Vancouver--she brings so many presents and so much fun, it's like Christmas, Easter, his birthday and Halloween all in one.
When she comes to help Fred's family fix up their fish market, Fred's cat Rick follows her around so closely she mistakes him for a guard dog. When Rick tears open Fred's parents waterbed, however, the cat finds himself in the doghouse. But Rick's reaction when robbers break into the newly renovated market save the day--and save himself.
Fred and the Flood is a hilarious, action-packed story about a pet that redeems himself, and brings a family closer together at the same time.
"A highly enjoyable read ... rife with humour. Fred is an engaging and likeable child who will be sure to make you smile. Highly recommended."
