5.0 out of 5 stars Magical, funny and very original: computer gothic!, 17 April 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Pure Dead Wicked (Hardcover)
Pure dead wicked is the second furry covered book (yes - really!) in a trilogy, continuing from Pure Dead Magic. It's set in StregaSchloss, an old castle home of the Strega-Borgias: Titus, the 12 year old computer mad hero, his 10 year old sister, Pandora, the heroine, and their baby sister, Damp, and not forgetting their mythical dungeon beasts Sab, Ffup and Knott.(and a few parents, staff, etc.)
While unscrupulous roofers inhabit StregaSchloss
and the family decamp to a hotel, Titus finds a website about cloning. Damp interferes and disaster strikes!
Keeping the secret away from parents and (weird) staff brings wild romping adventures involving a dragons egg, a deep frozen grandmother, and very powerful vanishing cream! Add cauldrons of humour,
imaginative names and places, and voila: you have a dead wicked book!
I'm now becoming very fond of the characters, though Marie Bain the cook would do well in any school kitchen - her sprouts are revolting!!
MY pets seem extremely dull compared to Multitudina the rat, her daughter, Terminus, and the lipstick-wearing spider Tarantella.
Debi Gliori writes beautifully for younger children, and as a 9 year old, I think her books for older kids are even better!(My mum enjoyed them, and she's OLD!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great characters, good fun, 23 May 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Pure Dead Wicked (Hardcover)
This is the second book in the trilogy of the Strega-Borgia family at their castle home of Strega Schloss. As with the first book "Pure Dead Magic" Debi shows that she has a keen sense of humour and a vivid imagination. The characters are strange, to say the least:- lipstick-wearing spiders, talking rats, mythical beasts, etc - in fact the whole family are as normal as a snail riding a bike! Move over Adams Family!
I really enjoyed reading this book. I found it to be very amusing, difficult to put down and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone between 8 and 108.
The book itself is covered with a red suede effect with silver lettering and looks as good as it reads.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite book, 4 Nov 2008
A Kid's Review
This review is from: Pure Dead Wicked (Paperback)
Pure Dead Magic was my favourite book until I read Pure Dead Wicked. My favourite bit is when ffup finds out that she is a girl and another is when ffup has her baby. My favourite characters in Strega Schloss are mrs mclachlan and damp.
