Get ready for the spookiest holiday of the year by digging into a scary tale by Debi Gliori! Check out our review of her latest book in the Pure Dead series.


Trouble At The Mansion

Pure Dead Trouble is the fourth book in Debi Gliori's Pure Dead series, which follows the wild adventures of Titus, Pandora and the rest of the Strega-Borgia family - including their odd collection of crocodiles, [kwlink]spiders[/kwlink] and monsters. In Pure Dead Trouble, the Strega-Boria family returns from a vacation in Italy to find their faithful butler, Latch, comatose on the front step, reeking of sulphur. Mrs. McLachlan realizes that Latch's condition is an omen of much more and much worse trouble to come. Unfortunately, Titus and Pandora are too distracted by their own problems to realize what trouble lies ahead. Pandora is too busy flirting with the mysterious replacement butler, while Titus is obsessed with uncovering the truth behind a massive biotechnology company with some very shady business interests.


Pure Suspense, Pure Laughs

Pure Dead Trouble is packed with suspense, gross humor and pure insanity - all the ingredients of a perfect story. The Strega-Boria family is like nothing else you've ever read about and you'll quickly find yourself getting caught up in their zany and bizarre way of life. What other family has a pet crocodile and a witch for a nanny? There's also plenty of gross and disgusting stuff, such as piles of dragon poop, that make the Pure Dead series a seriously fun and exciting read.


The Bottom Line

Pure Dead Trouble is a real page-turner, packed with sinister plots, magical spells and important lessons about being loyal to your family and pet crocodiles. If you haven't read all the previous books in this series, it may take you awhile to keep track of all the different characters - but in the end, all the zany plotlines and creatures eventually connect together. Pure Dead Trouble is a great book to read around Halloween, or whenever you feel like reading something that's a little off the wall.

The first book that was read to me by my learning buddy in Sunnybrook School was Harry potter and the Sorcerer's stone. I was bowled over by the book and it took me to a different world. Harry, Ron and Hermione became my friends as well.

No. Edit: To clarify, not everyone's opinions matter on every topic. For example, my opinion on how I feel about quantum mechanics doesn't matter because I know almost nothing about it, and I definitely don't know it on a level where I could describe it accurately with math. Or, if someone is to show time and time again that they have no idea what they're talking about for a specific subject, their opinion about it obviously matters less since they're most likely just willfully uninformed. For worldly things like you might see in the Dear Dish-It section, still not everyone's opinions matter though input, even if silly, is usually a good thing.

While there are quote ''good opinions'' there are supposibly ''bad opinions'' So does every one's opinion truly matter? dispite what they taught us in school.
