Misfit witch Willow Moss holds the fate of the magical world of Starfell in her rather unremarkable hands . . . A spellbinding new fantasy series for readers aged 8–12, perfect for fans of Cressida Cowell.
Willow Moss, the youngest and least powerful sister in a family of witches, has a magical ability for finding lost things – like keys, or socks, or wooden teeth. Her magic might be useful, but it’s not exactly exciting . . . Until, that is, the most powerful witch in the whole of Starfell turns up at her door needing Willow’s help.
A whole day – last Tuesday to be precise – has gone missing. And the repercussions could be devastating. Can Willow find the day to save the day?
Willow Moss is the perfect heroine for young girls. The book is filled with a fantastic adventure that takes you around a whimsical Starfell, a place filled with different places with unique features. The writing is flushed with details that paint Starfell with vibrant colours. Willow is just one of the few characters that make this book fun and enjoyable. Oswin, the not-tabby-cat, is one of the characters that I loved reading about. Not only was he funny but his temper made situations more interesting. The illustrations that can be found on almost every page was detailed and created an immersive experience and brought Willow and the rest to life. Thank you so much to Jonathan Ball Publishers for providing me with a copy of this book.
Yours in Reading,
