When the Strega-Borgias return from holiday to find that their faithful family retainer, Latch, has collapsed from unknown causes, it is only the start of their problems. Signora Strega-Borgia is feeling very peaky in the mornings, Titus is trying to save the world and Pandora has an embarrassing crush on the new butler (to say nothing of the fact that a demon is trying to invade StregaSchloss). Only Ffup the dragon is truly happy, due to her forthcoming marriage to the Loch Ness Monster. A fantastically epic plot, culminating in Flora McLachlan making the ultimate sacrifice, which will have committed fans and newcomers turning the pages late into the night.

Debi Gliori is the author and illustrator of many books for children, including the very popular Mr Bear series. She won the Children's Book Award picture book section, and was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal in 1997. Her backlist in Doubleday/Corgi includes Tell Me Something Happy Before I Go to Sleep and The Very Small. Pure Dead Magic, which introduced the Strega-Borgias, was her first novel. It was followed by Pure Dead Wicked, Pure Dead Brilliant, Deep Trouble, Deep Water and Deep Fear. Debi lives in Scotland, near Edinburgh.Review:
"The deliciously outrageous plot mixes love, marriage, midges, acne and sulphur. Deep Trouble is as fast, witty and wildly inventive as the first three books" Scotsman "Debi Gliori twists numerous events into the main plot spinning a tale full of wit and humour with a dashing of wild imagination and ingenuity" Write Away! "Full of demons and wickedness but comic with it" Oxford Times "Strange, kooky, funny and enthralling. If you haven't got into the Pure Dead series, it is highly recommended" Birmingham Post
