An amazing gothic romp of a first novel from award-winning picture book author and illustrator, Debi Gliori.

A great part of the fun of this listen is the astounding and preposterous things that the characters all accept as normal! In that way, it reminded me of The Munsters or The Addams Family! Still, the real story surrounds the kids -- Titus, Pandora and Baby Damp, a father who disappeared, and a family fortune. Oh, and don't forget the nanny who seems too perfect to be true and isn't telling everything.
This audio story was wonderfully narrated, the acters were very good and the actually tale had me laughing from the very start. Think Science mixed with a dash of magic, a super nanny and a totally crazy family and you have "Pure Dead Magic". No matter your age, if you're looking for a bit of a light read to cheer you up or sympley to relax too, this is it!
