Description

Isadora Moon is special because she's different. Her mum is a fairy, her dad is a vampire, and she's a bit of both.

When Isadora's teacher announces the class are having a maths test on Monday, Isadora gets a nervous feeling in her tummy. She really doesn't like tests . . . or maths!
Maybe, Isadora could pretend to be ill so she can stay at home instead? Isadora calls her naughty cousin Mirabelle for help and she gives her a spell that will help Isadora get out of the test.
To Isadora's delight, it works! But between a potion mishap and magic pox fluffballs bouncing around all over the place, Isadora starts feeling a bit guilty. Luckily, her mum is on hand to help set things right and together they come up with a new, magical way to say goodbye to the magic pox and even make revising for the maths test fun!

With irresistible pink and black artwork throughout by author/illustrator Harriet Muncaster, Isadora Moon is a unique heroine with an out-of-this-world family!

Reviews

`Praise for the Isadora Moon series: 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

`Praise for Isadora Moon Goes to School: This (is a) lively celebration of difference and mixed heritage.' The Guardian

`Praise for Isadora Moon Goes to School: 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
