All is not well at StregaSchloss, home of the bizarre but lovable Strega-Borgia clan. Mum's attempts to improve her witchcraft skills are failing miserably. Dad has stormed out in a fit of pique. Titus is virtually umbilically attached to his computer. Pandora is seriously bored. And Baby Damp is getting her fat little fingers into everything around.

Enter wonder-nanny Mrs McLachlan - she'll soon sort out the Strega-Borgia children, and their parents too, but will she cope with the presence of mythical beasts in the basement, to say nothing of the unexpected arrival of four hit-men, including one in a rabbit suit?

MEDIA REVIEWS
Debi Gliori's first novel is an unbridled fantasy with elements of the Addams family, a hint of Gormenghast and overtones of the mafia, together with computer technology and some parody, all blended into a heavy brew that is laugh-out-loud funny * The Bookseller *
It's a gallimaufry of ghastly, giggly stuff * Financial Times *
Fluent and energetic * The Sunday Times *
Features one of the most eccentric families in children's fiction . . . A rollicking red, which rapidly draws the reader into its strange and gothic world * Waterstones Books Quarterly *
Wonderful stuff * Daily Telegraph *
