Lily | 9 comments I read a series of books about ten years ago, though I don't think they were that new when I read them. I think each title started with Dead... or Deadly..... They all had brightly coloured velvet feel covers. There was a red, green and purple one (and possibly black). They had no description on them, just the title.
I think I found them in the kid's/ya section.
I can't remember much of the plot. I think they were about a family with magic. There was definitely a brother and sister. I think there were magical creatures as well, (possibly the Loch Ness monster)
Any help would be much appreciated, I know there isn't much to go on! This series pops up in my mind all the time for some reason!

Lily | 9 comments Yes! That's it, thank you so much :) I'll have to go hunt the down now and see if they were actually as good as I remember!

Lily--you can't do it on a tablet. You have to be at an actual computer to do that. Smartphones don't let you do it either. GR needs to get the programmers on the job and have them fix the apps, don't they? :o) (I've also taken care of moving this for you.)
