Review: Isadora a half vampire half fairy doesn’t want to do her math test at school, so finds a way to become sick and get out of it, giving herself the magic pox and having pink spots all over her face.

This is one of the most adorable books I’ve ever read, Isadora is so so cute and so is her sister Honeyblossom. She is such a sweet little vampire fairy and she let her fear take over her with the math test and did something wrong but adorable to avoid it. I loved how wonderful her mother was, she was so caring and understanding an helped her lovingly.

I loved how Isadora learnt so much and gained her confidence, she didn’t want to struggle with her math but didn’t know what else to do, learning it all was hard for her. Eventually she learnt her ways around it making it easier for herself and I loved that she did.

I love the illustrations throughout this book it was stunning and I loved the pink touches throughout the book. The characters were all so adorably drawn and the pink fluff balls and pink rabbit were too cute.

I really loved at the end of the book it had lots of extras included too. So much extra stuff you can do after reading the book which I always love. It extends what you’ve read perfectly.
