Ideal for fans of Nevermoor and The Wizards of Once, Valente’s imaginative and witty fantasy sets a young witch with a distinctly unimpressive ability on an adventure with cloud dragons, bashful trolls and unpredictable broomsticks in a desperate bid to find a missing day.
Exclusive Edition - with sprayed edges
Waterstones Children's Book of the Month for March 2020
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. Useful, but not exactly exciting . . .
Then the most powerful witch in the world of Starfell turns up at Willow's door and asks for her help. A whole day - last Tuesday to be precise - has gone missing. Completely. And, without it, the whole universe could unravel.
Now Willow holds the fate of Starfell in her rather unremarkable hands . . . Can she save the day - by finding the lost one?
Step into Starfell, a world crackling with warmth, wit and magic, perfect for readers aged 8-12.
