Terrifically original, exciting and inventive this is the final part of the Pure Dead series. It is an epic tale of a final battle between good and evil that’s both full of humour and magic. Rest assured its one of the most bizarre and hysterical climaxes to the most original series you'll read all year!

Synopsis

Deep Fear by Debi Gliori

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? Pure Dead Magic, which introduced the Strega-Borgias, was her first novel, and was followed by Pure Dead Wicked, Pure Dead Brilliant, Deep Trouble, Deep Water and Deep Fear.

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 Herald
