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”.
