In a nutshell: half-vampire, half-fairy, Isadora makes a new friend
Lively, told in short chapters and filled with illustrations this appealing series is perfect for newly independent readers. They’ll certainly be very taken with the eponymous Isadora: daughter of a vampire dad and fairy mum her heritage means she’s a bit of both, as reflected in the books’ pink and black colour scheme. In this adventure her class goes on a school trip to a local castle. Isadora and her dad discover a lonely little ghost and hope he’ll make new friends among Isadora’s classmates. But when the other children see him, they immediately run away in fear. It’s only when Isadora helps them see Oscar as another playfellow rather than as a ghost that they realise how much they like him. Fun and original, with an important message deftly delivered.

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 she is a bit of both. Isadora's class are going on a school trip to an old castle. The castle's a little bit spooky and it doesn't help that there's thunder and lightning outside. While Isadora investigates the castle dungeon she discovers a surprising new friend. He's a little different, like her, so Isadora's going to have to try and find a way of introducing him to her friends without them getting too much of a shock. With a gorgeous glittery cover, irresistible pink and black artwork throughout, and a totally unique heroine with an out-of-this-world family, this is a beautiful, charming, and funny series of first chapter books.
Perfect for fans of Claude, Dixie O'Day, and Squishy McFluff, Isadora Moon is the ideal choice for readers who want their magic and sparkle with a bit of bite!
