Meet Isadora Moon: half-vampire, half-fairy and totally unique! The Isadora Moon book series is perfect for young girls ages 6 to 9 that love books about magic and fantasy. Dive right in to the first three books in the series: Isadora Moon Goes to School, Isadora Moon Goes Camping and the latest installment Isadora Moon Goes to the Ballet.
Isadora Moon loves sunshine — and nighttime. She loves her magic wand — and her black tutu. She loves spooky bats — and Pink Rabbit. Isadora is half-fairy, half-vampire, and she’s special because she is different!
Now Isadora’s parents want her to start school, but she’s not sure where she belongs — fairy school or vampire school?
Camping is full of surprises when you’re a vampire-fairy! When Isadora Moon and her family go on a camping trip to the beach, they’re just like everybody else. They roast marshmallows and build sand castles and sleep in a tent!
But in a magical family, anything can happen. And when Isadora goes on a nighttime adventure, she makes an unusual friend under the sea…
Isadora Moon is special because she is different. But just like her other classmates, Isadora loves the ballet.
That’s why Isadora can’t wait for a field trip with her class to see the performance of Alice in Wonderland. Everything is totally normal. And then the curtain rises and Isadora’s special best friend, Pink Rabbit, is not in his seat. . .
Big Sis is 9 and has read all 3 of these books on her own and she loves them. They are very much her style (and my style when I was a little girl). I read them to Lil Sis who is 6 and she enjoys them but not as much as Big Sis does. I have only just recently tried getting Lil Sis into fantasy style books so I still have plenty of time to work on her. The font is large, there are scattered illustrations and they are long enough to really tell a good story but not too long so that little ones just getting into chapter books won’t be bored. Who wouldn’t enjoy seeing a half-fairy, half-vampire camping with their family?! Isadora does things just like other kids…just a little differently. I can say that we are all in love with Isadora Moon and we can’t wait to read more about her in future books.
