Pure Dead Trouble Reviews

  • Bobby

    I loved the first two books of these series but I didn't like the third as much and figured I was getting too old for it. In the interests of finishing what I had started, I put the last three books on my Christmas wishlist. After having received them, I'd finished them by the day after Boxing Day. These books, as a series, are very readable - even if the toilet humour does become a bit overwhelming after a while. This was really the turning point of the set for me: the point in which all the bo [...]

    Whoa, I have a whole page of rambled notes on this! Another I grabbed at the book swap for the pretty cover. Took it with me to Vienna, finished it before I was even at Gatwick.It started off really fun, meeting the Strega-Borgia family on their way home from Milan, at Glasgow airport. They were rather Addams-ish and seemed interesting but then we kind of went away from them, wtf? It was kind of annoying, to introduce such great characters and then suddenly move right away from them and onto a n [...]

    I like that these books are set mainly in Scotland. They come with a loch monster, midges, crumbling castles and so on.The cast list in this book is quite long and the story has been well under way in three previous books, but the mother of this family is a student witch, her kids, husband, butler, nanny and so on put up with her and we don't see where they get their money. There are various creatures around such as a talking tarantula, a scaredy dragon and a centaur.In this book there is also a [...]

    another solid entry into the “pure dead” series. somewhat like the addams family, the thing about this series that first drew me in was reading that the children were named Titus, Pandora and Damp (she’s the baby). This volume has its fair share of explosions and mythical creatures, but the word that keeps rolling around in my head like a marble is the name of their breakfast cereal of choice: miserablios.

  • Shaunesay

    A very funny kids series, described as Mary Poppins meets the Addams family, and I think that's a great description. A lot of fun, I recommend it!

  • Hannah Smith

    A nice refresher after the last Pure Dead book. Love the style and story as a kid and now

  • Carterkempgmail.Com

    Funny, but the vocabulary and dialect are likely to make this book bewildering to all but the most sophisticated (elementary school) readers.

  • Elevetha

    I own this copy and the British version as well.

  • Miss Clark

    2.5 stars.It simply was not as amusing as previous installments. The best scenes were with Damp and the Dread Scratchy, Flora and Damp's goodbye and Pan and Titus' grieving.

    Very Good.
