Mrs Mad's humble opinion
10/10 Excellent work. Well done!
What's it about?
More mad, magic goings on at SregaSchloss!
What happens?
Signora Strega-borgia has invited some of her witch colleagues to stay at StregaSchloss, and it isn't going down too well with her husband or her children. Even the beasts are feeling put upon by the odd behaviour of the house-guests! Titus picks up a deadly computer virus and keeps dreaming of his own death, Pandora takes a special devise for time travel from Mrs Mclachlan's room and start jumping about through time. And Damp starts to reveal her exceptional powers, much to the annoyance of Mrs Mclachlan. However one of the houseguests is very interested in the youngest member of the family and she also has plans for other members of the Strega-Borgia family! Can Titus and Pandora save their family once again and is now the time to find out just who is the father of Ffup's baby son Nestor?
Is it easy to read?
A good read for anyone who is confident also a good choice to read with your child or to a class.
Anything else?
Masterful writing, just open the book and let the story start! This is wonderful, absolutely spot on, the humour is ever present and the twists and turns of the plot keep you entranced from the very first page. This series is one of the best available to readers at the moment and if you haven't read the first two read them before you read this one! This book speaks for itself Pure Brilliance!!
Other books by Debi Gliori include Penguin Post, Pure Dead Magic, Pure Dead Wicked.
