Review: It’s the vampire ball on a special blood moon night and all the vampire children are asked to perform in a talent showcase. Isadora wants to do ballet but it’s not vampire-y enough and she doubts herself and becomes too scared to perform. Then she meets a girl just like her and together put on a spectacular show.

This was really cute, having Araminta with her really gave her the confidence boost she was missing. I loved that we were introduced to another half vampire in this book and that they became close and showed to every vampire there what they can do.

The vampire ball was so fascinating with so many vampires all gathered together and it being a special event, i really liked the concept of it. I loved that each child had a different talent to show off, it was really cute.

The illustrations are always adorable and I loved seeing so many new vampire characters within this book, it was so cute. I always love the colour pops too on each page. Isadora and Pink Rabbit looked extra cute in this one with the tutu and capes.
