If you loved the magical mayhem of Nevermoor and the cliffhanging adventure of The Wizards of Once, then let Starfell: Willow Moss and the Lost Day weave its enchanting, hilarious spell over you. Willow is the youngest witch in her family, very likeable and kind but still stuck at the basic magic level. So when the fate of Starfell – a magical home to cloud dragons, bashful trolls and broomsticks with a mind of their own – rests upon her shoulders, Willow will need all her pluck and resourcefulness to, quite literally, save the day. With ringing endorsements from the likes of Robin Stevens and Michelle Harrison, Starfell: Willow Moss and the Lost Day kicks off a fantastical new series in sublime style.
Waterstones Children's Book of the Month for March 2020
Exclusive sprayed edges.
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.
