Metà vampira, metà fata, semplicemente unica!

La mamma è una fata e il papà, invece, un vampiro. Lei è un po’ di tutti e due. Adora la notte, i pipistrelli e il suo tutù nero; ma ama altrettanto l’alba, le bacchette magiche e il suo Coniglietto Rosa.
Per Isadora è tempo di andare a scuola, ma non sa qual è quella giusta per lei: la scuola delle fate o la scuola dei vampiri?

A bedtime read with my 3 year old, that she enjoyed to the point of acting it out all through our family holiday!

What a breath of fresh air Isadora Moon is to the 5-8 category. A great representation of the ability to be different while not compromising on 'girly-ness'. Isadora's stories are funny and charming, and the artwork inside is just beautiful.

Can't wait to check out the rest of the series!

So adorable! A really fun little chapter book with cute/spooky pink and black illustrations. I could totally relate to Isadora as someone who also loves both cute things and spooky things... I'd definitely like to collect the rest of this series.
So cute! Lucia enjoyed this *almost* as much as Franny k. Stein. Isadora's dad is a vampire and her mom is a fairy, which makes her half of both. She tries out vampire school and Fairy school but doesn't fit in either place. Where does she belong?!

Isadora Moon isn't like other children, she's half vampire, half fairy. Her dad is a vampire and Isadora loves flying at night and she likes bats. Her mother is a fairy and therefore Isadora also likes the day, spending time outside in the sunshine. She loves her pink rabbit and cute baby sister. It's time for Isadora to go to school, which school should she choose, a school for vampires or a school for fairies?

Read this for #middlegrademay. It's an adorable story about Isadora who is half fairy and half vampire. Her mom is a fairy. Her dad is a vampire. The art work in this book is adorable done in black, white and pink. Isadora has to decide which school to attend. Her choices are Fairy school or vampire school. She learns different things about herself while choosing the between the two schools.

A young girl, who is half fairy and half vampire, has to decide where to go to school.

I found this a bit of an odd idea for a book and although it had many good points it didn’t captivate me.

Excellent beginning reader chapter book. My daughter and I both enjoyed it. Fun story with lots of super adorable illustrations. I’m surprised these books aren’t more popular.

This was a fantastic beginning chapter book that I read with my 6 year old daughter. She loved reading about the half-vampire/half-fairy and how Isadora learned that she doesn’t need to be full vampire or full fairy. The colors and illustrations in the book were spot on and my daughter is already begging me to find the other books in this series.

Ah, what a good read. Indeed. Penned by my friend author, mum, illustrator, this book is for keeps if you have children and even if you don't. The tagline being- its okay to be different. Although some people, in their lives, prefer being ordinary while others try to fit into boxes, this book dispels the notion that we can try to fit in those boxes but find your own corner because life is about your joys, passion likes and dislikes and nobody can ever tell you what you should like or dislike.

I already loved this the first time I saw it. It's super cute, and spooky at the same time - just the way I like it! I didn't get it before I saw it on sale though, and I'm really glad I did!
The book looks very tiny, but it's bigger than I expected. It's a nicely sized hardback, with raised glittery parts on the cover.

Since this is the first book, we are introduced to Isadora Moon and her family for the first time. She's half vampire and half fairy - her father is a vampire, and her mother is a

Isadora Moon is a breath of fresh air, and she just might remind some readers that it's okay to be oneself and not choose one aspect of one's identity over another. The daughter of a fairy and a vampire, Isadora has a beloved stuffed toy that her mother had brought to life, and she thinks her world is pretty much perfect. Things change when her parents decide she must go to school, and to her parents' disappointment, she doesn't do well at fairy school or vampire school. As it turns out, Isadora ...more

What a cute little chapter book! Publisher description:

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?

I love this character - she likes opposing things and isn't all the way either one. She tries to see where she fi

This is a very cute beginning chapter book. I look forward to adding it to my collection. Isadora is a pretty sweet little girl (well, fairy vampire) who loves her parents and her best buddy Pink Rabbit. When her parents decide it's time for her to go to school, she tries out both fairy school and vampire school. She is humbled a bit when she learns she is not the best at many of the tasks she tho

My 5 year old daughter read this book to me. Lovely story with great illustrations. An easy and fun read with a few words that I thought would cause my daughter problems but to my surprise she nailed them.
My daughter couldn’t wait to read more each day, she even said when we finished the book that we needed to go any buy the next book. The story was great and had a lesson that Isadora learnt. Who wouldn’t love a story about a girl who is half fairy, half vampire?!
We loved how well our daughter
I think this is a generous 2 stars, and more accurately a one and a half at most. I didn't care for the writing in this early chapter book, and the story itself was bland. Plus the illustrations were ugly. Yeah, I said it: That little vampire fairy is ugly. But in my quest to constantly discover good reading material for my students, I am pretty open to reading almost anything that might possibly garner their interest. I'm still unsure as to whether I will actually introduce my students to this ...more

Cute chapter book about a little girl who is half fairy, half vampire and isn’t sure which school she should go to. She tries both and doesn’t fit in either. When she talks to kids walking to regular school and notices each one is different, she realizes their school is perfect for her.
I truly don't like the way Isadora's parents are portrayed - as clueless and rather out-of-it? While they promote Isadora making her own decision about school, the child is only five or six and they don't offer he

Isadora Moon is half-fairy, half-vampire and now it is time to go to school. She has to decide which school she wants to attend. She tries both fairy school and vampire school but neither is a good fit. So she is in a dilemma. Where does she go to school?

I enjoyed Isadora. I especially liked her sidekick, Pink Rabbit. Isadora knows who she is and when she meets the human kids going home from their school she realizes that she is like all of them--different. She realizes different isn't bad. It's

Isadora Moon is half vampire and half fairy. It is time for her to start school, but which school should she go to? Vampire school or Fairy school? She tries both and just doesn't fit in. What is she supposed to do? In the end she finds the perfect solution. This story is cute and there are some funny moments. My only disappointment is that the "you're different so you don't fit in" theme is a bit stereotypical. Overall, a nice new series.

Very cute, perfect for kids who like cute AND spooky stuff and sometimes feel torn between the two. Also could be great for kids who have parents from different cultures and feel like they aren't enough of one or the other to be pigeonholed. Bit of a cop-out to have her go to a human school in the end as far as those deep questions of identity go, but a nice resolution to the story for human children to read anyway!
Read  Ribbet
New series of a relatively easy chapter book featuring a man character that is part fairy and part vampire. This first book in the series focuses on what school Isadora should attend-- one for fairies or one for vampires? The experiences remind readers that finding the right fit is always important. It's an enjoyable easy read with appeal for some transitional readers moving into chapter books.
Katie Dicesare
I love Isadora! This series is perfect for 2 and 3rd grade. It has just enough picture support and the text length is a great for transitional readers. It will really have 7 and 8 year olds asking questions and enjoying a story that they can relate to.

I read this as an ARC from the Erie County Public Library. I really enjoyed it! It's a great early chapter book, good for fans of Princess in Black. It has a few elements similar to Pinkalicious (yay!). Eight year old me would have swallowed this book whole.

Isadora Moon is half vampire and half fairy. When it is time to start school, her mom thinks she should go to fairy school; while her dad thinks she should go to vampire school. After trying both, Isadora must pick one, or does she?

Great story about being yourself!!
Ann Haefele
Loved this beginning chapter book about a little girl who is half fairy and half vampire. Children will laugh at her mishaps but sympathize with her inadequate feelings of being different. Kids can continue to read about Isadora in other books in the series.
