Halloween is the perfect time to leaf through all the spooky books in the library. Take a look at Kidzworld's review of Pure Dead Magic to find out if it's just Halloween trash or a year-round treat.
Spellbing StoryFrom the very first chapter, you'll know that Pure Dead Magic is going to be a good one. It'll pull you in with the very first description of the Strega-Borgia mansion, home to Titus, Pandora and baby Damp. The book starts out with Mrs. Strega-Borgia desperately searching for a nanny to care for her three children so she can go back to witchcraft school. The last few nannies that have applied have all met untimely deaths, becoming dinner for the family's pet crocodile, Tock. But then nanny McLachlan comes along and things change.
Mrs. McLachlan is looking to start fresh and leave her magical past behind. She's tired of the all the drama that comes with being a witch and the Strega-Borgia family is tired of magically-inclined nannies. But they will all soon find out that what they are desperately trying to leave behind is exactly what they need to get their lives back on track.
The Bottom Line
Pure Dead Magic takes you on a spectacular journey following the Strega-Borgia family. You'll witness kidnappings, witchcraft, monsters and sibling rivalry. And lucky for fans of the book, it's part of a trilogy! The second book in the trio, is called Pure Dead Wicked and the third is called Pure Dead Brilliant.
