About this title


After a vacation in Italy, the Strega-Borgia clan arrives home to a shocking discovery: their faithful butler Latch lying comatose on the front doorstep, reeking faintly of sulphur. Horrified and troubled, Titus and Pandora suspect this may be an omen of bad fortune, but both are soon distracted by their own problems.

Only Nanny McLachlan realizes the truth: Whatever it was that came for Latch is coming back. And when it does, will she alone be strong enough to protect the family?
From the Hardcover edition.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6–The Strega-Borgias are back. This time, someone has attacked their butler, Latch, leaving him with amnesia and a strange sulphuric aroma. Demons from Hades have come looking for the Chronostone, which will give the Boss domination over time itself. Nanny McLachlan, who travels about on a flying rug, is trying to protect the family, while Damp and Pandora discover their magical gifts. What is the relationship between the temporary butler and the new biotechnology company in town? Gliori's talented writing keeps readers guessing from beginning to end. Humorous interludes mix with suspense and fantasy to create a cauldron full of zaniness. Reminiscent of the Addams Family and the Munsters, the Strega-Borgias are nevertheless originals. Vertical line drawings embellish chapter openings. Newcomers don't need to have read the earlier volumes to follow the action, but knowledge of the back story certainly adds to the fun. Devotees will be standing in line for this delightful installment in the series.–Saleena L. Davidson, South Brunswick Public Library, Monmouth Junction, NJ
