Debi Gliori (born 1959) is a Scottish writer and illustrator of children's books. Gliori was born in Glasgow and grew up there as an only child. She started writing children's books in 1976 and attended art school in Edinburgh from 1979 to 1984. She then received an Andrew Grant travelling scholarship award to go to Milan, and worked as a freelance from 1984. In 1989, independent children's book publisher Walker Books signed her, and she acquired an agent three years later.

Pure Dead Wicked by Debi Gliori is a decent book but I would not reccomend it for younger reader because it has several difficult words to read and understand, particularly the proper nouns. I would reccomed this book to middle aged readers or more advanced reader who enjoy books with plenty of action without going overboard.

Sequel to: Pure dead magic. Reprinted by arrangement with Alfred A. Knopf"-T. The Strega-Borgia children accidentally create 500 clones of themselves at the same time that the roof on their Scottish castle falls in, attracting evil contractors who want their home.

There are few, if any, maps on which the amateur orienteer mightdiscover the coordinates for the village of Auchenlochtermuchty. This is because the indigenous population wish to avoid being overrun with tartan-liveried tour buses, tartan-tat tourist shops, and, in truth, tartan anything.

No one ever tells me anything. The beasts stood on the shore of Lochnagargoyle, within sight of home

No one ever tells me anything. The beasts stood on the shore of Lochnagargoyle, within sight of home oss the lapping water. We told you. It blew off. On Christmas Eve, remember? No, wailed Knot, I don’t mean the roof. I mean what happened to Ffup? He’s-no, she’s gone all. It’s a girl thing, muttered the dragon. Don’t ask. Tock emerged from the loch, his scales dripping and his claws scrabbling for purchase on the seaweedy pebbles.

Debi Gliori is the author and illustrator of many books for children, including the very popular Mr Bear series. Pure Dead Magic, which introduced the Strega-Borgias, was her first novel. 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. It was followed by Pure Dead Wicked, Pure Dead Brilliant, Deep Trouble, Deep Water and Deep Fear. Debi lives in Scotland, near Edinburgh.

About Pure Dead Wicked. Just when the Strega-Borgias think it’s safe to relax in their ancestral castle. Debi Gliori, born in Glasgow in 1959, is a Scottish writer and illustrator of many popular children’s books. First their roof collapses, forcing them into the Auchenlochtermuchty Arms–the only local hotel that will accomodate three mythical beasts and one crocodile. Her bestsellers include What’s the Time, Mr. Wolf? and Mr. Bear to the Rescue, which was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal.

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 in this highly acclaimed second novel.

I bought this book for my nephews, and decided to read it before giving it away. The Strega Borgia family is even funnier than ever in this book. Their tumble down castle's roof is falling in and they have to move out so that the contractors can work. Little do they know that the evil contractor want to buy the castle cheap, so that he can build a cheap housing development. He and his crew do their best to destroy the castle. The family has to live in an hotel in the nearby village. The dragon, crocodile, yeti and griffin aren't exactly welcome. The proprietress has designs on Luciano, and Titus is using his computer to make clones. Pandora is upset about leaving Multitudina and Tarantella behind. Then, there is the mystery of the Strega Borgia diamond.
This is a really great book for both children and adults. It makes bedtime stories a little more fun for everyone.

A Fun and imaginative story
Series I enjoyed reading at high school and enjoyed reading it a second time too!

Risky Strong Dromedary
In "Pure Dead Magic," Deb Gliori introduced us to the eccentric Strega-Borgia family in an ancestral Scottish castle, StregaSchloss. Now she takes their story a few steps further, in a hotel stay and house repair difficulty bad enough to induce cold sweats in the middle of the night. It's a charming sequel with the same quirky cast and unabashed low humor, and kids will love it.
The roof of StregaSchloss is not just leaking, but falling off. After a slate demolishes the family car and a deluge of water destroys the library, Signor Strega-Borgia moves the family out to a hotel until the problem can be rectified. Unfortunately, the family not only includes his wife, his kids Titus Pandora and Damp, and the family nurse, but also the pet dragon, griffin, yeti and crocodile. (The cryogenically frozen grandmother, the spider, and the rats all stay behind)
Mayhem begins immediately. A desperate real estate dealer begins trying to persuade Signor Strega-Borgia to sell the castle to him (so he can "develop" the area), and the predatory owner of the hotel, Mrs. Froves-Campbell, tries to seduce him. The pets cause assorted problems. The roof of StregaSchloss vanishes, prompting the horrified Signor Strega-Borgia to sell. And Titus cooks up a scheme to clone himself and Pandroa -- except instead of two full-sized clones, he accidently creates hundreds of tiny ones. With an army of unruly clones, a decaying castle, a pregnant dragon, a murderous hotel owner, and a tiny jar of vanishing cream, Pandora and Titus definitely have their hands full.
Gliori manages to sidestep one of the major flaws of many sequels, which is making the sequel too much like the first. "Wicked" is quite different from "Magic," while retaining the elements that made the first book endearing: a mix of magic and technology, a grandmotherly witch, gross-out hijinks and a pair of in-over-their-head kids.
The reactions of Pandora and Titus ("Our parents would kill us if they knew") to having 500 Mini-Mes running around the hotel are hilarious, and there is a note of poignancy when the clones begin to age. Kindly witch Mrs. McLachlan serves as a note of relative sanity, and the skin-and-fur-loving Mrs. Fforbes-Campbell will inspire disgust in readers from the start. And the pets/security system are given extra dimensions when forced to live in ordinary surroundings (and with the promise of new beastie problems in the next book).
Those who enjoyed the darkly quirky Strega-Borgia family in the first book will definitely like the second. A good read for this upcoming Halloween.

Purely enjoyed this book! Very imaginative. I suspect some of the words and names used will be hard for less literate young people to understand or pronounce, but I don't think it detracts from the book. I'm currently reading the second book in the series, and so far, I'm enjoying it just as much as the first.

This wasn't a book where you HAD to keep reading or you would die...it was more a hahaha this is hilarious and a book you would pick up for some light reading. It was a mix of Artemis Fowl plot and Lemony Snicket humour. It was a book full of mystery and laughter. If you liked Lemony Snicket or Artemis Fowl then this is your kind of book. It is sarcastic, witty and has subtle ironic humour that is buried just below the surface. If you like to laugh then read this book...and the prequel which is Pure Dead Magic. All that sums this book up is well...funfun you got it! (like as in bk u got it!) Well anywys this is a great book for ages 10 to 13...but if you are younger or older then you might enjoy this too!

Pure Dead Wicked by Debi Gliori is a decent book but I would not reccomend it for younger reader because it has several difficult words to read and understand, particularly the proper nouns. I would reccomed this book to middle aged readers or more advanced reader who enjoy books with plenty of action without going overboard . The book moves along quite consistantly and the plot is somewhat is somewhat interesting. This book is fairly easy to read and i would rate this book at three (3) stars.

In a castle far away, with magical creatures who protect their family, there is...
... A yeti that wipes his nose on his own fur, a dragon that burns the food and a crocodile that eats people.
A magical tale full of humour and adventure
