LoveReading View on Isadora Moon Goes to School

Isadora Moon is an adorable, friendly Vampire Fairy trying to find her way and this is a lovely start to what promises to be a delightful series. Beautifully presented throughout with pink and black illustrations that alongside the text and easy to follow chapters make this a lovely step up book for newly independent readers.

Isadora's mum (a fairy) and her dad (a vampire) decide it’s time for her to go to school and choose between a school for vampires or a school fairies.  However Isadora is unsure where she belongs and after spending a day at fairy school and a night at vampire school she decides that she isn’t very good at being either a vampire or a fairy and begins to question how different she is. But with the help of Pink Rabbit and some new friends Isadora soon learns that it’s okay to be different.  In fact it’s pretty great to just be yourself. ~ Shelley Fallows

Isadora Moon Goes to School Synopsis

Half vampire, half fairy, totally unique! Isadora Moon is special because she is different. Her mum is a fairy and her dad is a vampire and Isadora is a bit of both. She loves the night, bats, and the colour black, but she also loves the outdoors, using her magic wand, and the colour pink. When it's time for Isadora to start school she's not sure where she belongs - vampire school or fairy school?

  • Diya Budhdeo, age 7 - 'This is one of my favourite ever books and I read this book quicker than I had read any other book before. This is perfect for girls my age and I can’t wait to read more. I love this book.'
  • Emma Radford (mum to Sam and Jack) - 'We loved Isadora Moon Goes to School...The illustrations were lovely and gave us lots to talk about. Both my boys are really keen to read more of Isadora's exploits!'
  • Tanya Thurling - 'the chapters are just the right length for one before I think this book is perfect if you want to progress to bigger books with your child...Isadora Moon who is half fairy and half vampire (which Eleanor LOVED. Possibly the coolest thing she's ever heard. Her words, not mine).'
  • Reece, age 6 - 'I like this book because I really like the pictures, they are pink and black.'
  • Star, age 7 - 'This book is 10/10 even though it is about vampire fairies.'
  • Olivier, age 7 - 'This book is funny because it makes you laugh. I really like the pictures.'
  • Leighton, age 7 - 'I like this book even though it is a girly book.'

  • Bran, age 7 - 'I give it 10/10 because it is funny and amazing.'

  • Mira Ruby Lalji, age 6 - 'A thrilling, colourful first chapter book about being unique!  Recommended for all new readers who love fantasy!.. Harriet Muncaster used interesting words like campfire, snoozing, Bartholeme, gurgling and turret.  I like learning new words!'
  • James McNichol, age 6 - 'There wasn't anything about Isadora Moon that I didn't like.'
  • Caye Gould - 'A book that eases a child into taking the big step of starting school in a delightful way. An excellent read for parents and children alike.'

  • Georgie Newman, age 8 - 'When I read the blurb I said to my mum that I thought I would like to be like Isadora. A few pages into the story and I really wanted to be like Isadora!'
