Harriet is inspired by “anything magical, fantastical and glittery”.

Isadora Moon is half vampire, half fairy.

Harriet’s “totally unique heroine has an out-of-this world family and each delightful funny story in the series is set in different situations where things don’t always go according to plan”.

The books, for the five to eight age group, are being published by Oxford University Press.

The series consists of four books being published now with another two coming out next year.
