Half Fairy – Half Vampire – Total Ballerina
Isadora Moon is just like any other elementary student except her mom is a fairy and her dad is a vampire and she has wings! She has a favorite stuffed animal she takes with her everywhere called Pink Rabbit. When I was little I had a little grey cat I called Mousie – don’t ask I was 2 when I named it 🙂 Isadora is in school and they are getting ready to go on a field trip to the ballet! Isadora adores the ballet, even performs daily ballet recitals for her family starting her and Pink Rabbit. Her dream is to be as good as Tatiana Tutu, she can’t believe her lucky stars that she gets to see her perform in Alice in Wonderland the ballet. The field trip doesn’t go off smoothly there are some bumps in the road. They arrive at the ballet only to lose Pink Rabbit. Isadora and her mom go looking for Pink Rabbit. Isadora finds the bunny but also runs in none other than Tatiana Tutu and she is injured. The ballet will not go on unless they find a ballerina who can play the role of white rabbit. What about Pink Rabbit? Pink Rabbit saves the day and Isadora gets a special surprise for her being such a great listener and willing to stop and help someone in need.
Isadora Moon Goes to the Ballet is a great fast reading chapter book perfect for beginning readers or listener’s who are ready for longer stories. This series would be such a cute one for little girls from Pre-K to 3rd grade. The story line is sweet and shows great relations with family and friends. They are all accepting of Isadora even though she isn’t like them she is half fairy half vampire. The illustrations are black and white with shades of grey and pop’s of the color pink. Isadora Moon would be a great series to read aloud with your little bookworm. If you could find a pink rabbit that would make a wonderful addition to a gift of this adorable book series.
About the Book: 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. . .
Great Gift Idea for birthday or holiday or just because: Isadora Moon series and a pink rabbit stuffed animal
