Get the review of the latest Pure Dead book by Debi Gliori, Pure Dead Trouble.

Title: Pure Dead Trouble
Author: Debi Gliori
Ages: 9+
Rating: 4


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.

Because if they can truly see the future than that means free will doesn't exist and we are just following the agenda of the universe. Or it could be that they know the choices which we will freely make.

YEAHHHH this is a good point, well one possibility is that what the prophets see is only ONE POSSIBLE FUTURE,  The Middle Eastern people, idk if you are into history but they had a lot of prophets in their times  where they would predict stuff, God would tell them certain info.  Like one time this prophet saw in a vision that this evil king had killed another guy so he could grab the guy's property for his own use.    He made sure the guy was killed legally so it was all cool but the prophet saw the truth so he went after him and told him he was going to die for what he did. Then the king felt really scared and guilty --so then God had mercy on him and said he wouldn't have to die.    His wife still did though 'cuz she was off the charts evil.    Does not ALWAYs work though like King David, he killed some guy and slept with his wife and had a kid and the prophet said the kid would die, and the kid died even though David was sick to his stomach feeing guilty about it.
