When a shooting star falls to earth loveable half-vampire, half-fairy Isadora Moon finds an interstellar new friend in urgent need of her help in the latest sparkling, side-splitting story from Harriet Muncaster.
Isadora Moon is special because she's different. Her mum is a fairy and her dad is a vampire and she's a bit of both. Isadora is observing the night sky for a school project - her class is learning everything about space and she decides to look at the stars for inspiration. But wait, what is that? Through the telescope, Isadora spots a shooting star that falls to Earth!
After courageously finding the place where the star landed, Isadora discovers a new twinkling friend. Her name is Nova, she is a Glow Sprite and she is not supposed to be there. Even worse, Nova's moon kitten Pluto is lost and she needs Isadora's help to find him.
Between magical campfires, space lessons, moon cheese and a glowing sleepover, Isadora will need to use all her wits to help Nova finding Pluto before her new friend has to fly back to the stars. With irresistible pink and black artwork throughout by author/illustrator Harriet Muncaster 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!

'This (is a) lively celebration of difference and mixed heritage.' - The Guardian
'This humorous chapter book, with attractive black-and-pink illustrations, deals sensitively with the difficulties that may be faced by anyone who feels different and struggles to fit in. Combining fairy magic with a feisty vampire twist, this is a great first volume in what promises to be an entertaining new series for independent young readers.' - BookTrust
'The books are a great way of teaching children that it's okay to be a little different, even if you are a fairy vampire! The imagery used both on the covers of the book and throughout really help bring the book to life - and the glitter and sparkle used on the front covers is sure to catch the attention of imaginative children everywhere.' - The Family Grapevine
