Although Halloween is the perfect time to leaf through all the spooky books in the library, some of those books are only suited for the Halloween season. Is Pure Dead Magic by Debi Gliori a trick or a treat?

Author: Debi Gliori

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 Story

From 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.

Magical Mysteries

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.

    I'm sorry, but there's one thing I want to ask you, do you think it's right for a 1 year old to have a boyfriend? I'm sure most of us would say no. This is certainly similar for people younger than 16, 17 or 18, to have a boyfriend. There is truly a correct age based on the way you find yourself to be mature enough, usually 16-18 years old.  Based on when I was young, though, I had a bunch of friends who had boyfriends when we were in Gr 3. Surprising? Well, not really. It's usually just a minor romantic interest and eventually, you'll move on from your boyfriend because of boredom or old variety. Suffice to say, it's wrong to have a boyfriend at a young age, such as ten because most of us, at that age, were still immature enough to handle the responsibility of having the opposite gender as a romantic interest. This is my perspective, if you cannot handle it, don't ask for it.

    I upgraded from 7. I really enjoy the start menu. The look and feel is nice. I like the apps available. Photos is a lot like Apple's iPhoto. I'm not too keen on it, but I'm glad the option to browse files is still readily there, and photos can be opened with other programs instead. Mail is mail. I prefer the more standard layout of my iCloud mail though. The multiple desktops, microsoft account login, notifications, and readily available search bar are great features. Microsoft Edge needs more help than internet explorer did. I've had to end a lot of tasks because it seems to run more in the background, but that's fine.  Overall it's been worth the upgrade.
