Synopsis: With the slates of the StregaSchloss roof crumbling round their ears, the Strega-Borgia family, complete with staff and dungeon-dwelling beasts, is forced to decamp to a local hotel for Christmas. Bored of being cooped up with only his laptop for entertainment, Titus tries his own experiment in cyber-cloning, only to end up besieged by 500 miniature versions of himself and sister Pandora. The beasts too are fed up at the hotel. Determined to return to StregaSchloss, Ffup the dragon, Sab the gryphon and friends set off cross-country only occasionally distracted by the call of the wild...A superbly labyrinthine plot weaves together clones, kids, beasts and dodgy roofers with great humour and a touch of magic.
From the Inside Flap:
Just when the Strega-Borgias think it?s safe to relax in their ancestral castle . . . it isn?t.
First their roof collapses, forcing them into the Auchenlochtermuchty Arms?the only local hotel that will accomodate three mythical beasts and one crocodile. Then Titus accidentally creates 500 tiny naked pink clones. And 500 tiny naked pink clones are not easy to manage. But not surprisingly, this isn?t the biggest Strega-Borgia dilemma?there?s also a few evil contractors plotting to destroy their home forever. Perhaps the miniature kilted warriors arising from the spilled magic potion can help. . . .
