The Strega Borgia family is 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.
