Description

This is an epic tale of a final battle between good and evil. The Strega-Borgias are in deep fear for their lives! The forces of evil are converging on StregaSchloss - demons, the Mafia, a changeling with a nasty bite - and the wild and weird Strega-Borgias must gather together their allies to fight back. But there are just a few too many distractions, with Damp the toddler-witch missing in action and a house full of wolves and bickering teenagers getting in the way. Can the family keep it together - even when they're scattered over time and place? This is a deliciously inventive and hilarious finale to the "Pure Dead" ...series.show more

Review quote

"The quirkiness and eccentricity of the characterisation is absolute genius. It is pure and high-spririted escapism, together with enough bottom jokes to keep every child in class laughing for at least a week" -- Jill Murphy thebookbag.co.uk "The absorbing world tinged with magic realism will appeal to children of different ages because of the author's deadpan humour" Glasgow Heraldshow more
