In a nutshell: half vampire, half fairy, all fun
Harriet Muncaster’s stories of little Isadora Moon have deservedly won a huge and enthusiastic following amongst young readers. Isadora’s lively adventures are full of the kinds of magic and make-believe that has real appeal for children, while the descriptions of her mixed family (Dad’s a vampire, Mum’s a fairy) ring very true too. In this episode, Isadora is excited to be going to a human fair, but when she and her family arrive, they find the rides are looking very battered and forlorn. A few touches of magic turns the fair into something very special indeed, but for Isadora the best fun of all is simply spending happy times with her family and friends. The illustrations are full of charm and the short chapters makes this truly accessible to newly independent readers.
