Description of this Book

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?

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review `If you're looking for smart, charming, imaginative fantasy, look no further than Starfell. It's one of those books that immediately makes you feel right at home.' - P. G. Bell, author of The Train to Impossible Places `A spellbinding debut set in an irresistible magical world.' - Fiona Noble, The Bookseller `This is a rip-roaring debut, packed with dragons and trolls, family rivalries and bitter grudges but the lasting message is one of loyalty, hope and the value of being different. With entertaining line drawings by Sarah Warburton, this is a series to watch out for.' - Daily Mail `This is glorious - wonderful. A book for everyone, especially those who don't believe they have a talent - who aren't anything special. This is not a book to be ignored.' - Sue Chambers, Waterstones `A joy for eight to 12-year olds.' - The Sunday Post, Scotland `A hugely funny, rip-roaring page-turner with more twists than you can shake a magic broomstick at.' Storgy Kids Magazine `Lovely, warm, magical and cosy, like the most comforting cup of hot chocolate. I can't wait to read Book 2!' - Stephanie Burgis, author of The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart `Fully-formed, warm and most importantly original . . . This would be a perfect recommendation for children that have already devoured and loved the novels of Cressida Cowell, Laura Ellen Anderson or Fleur Hitchcock. And of course Harry Potter!' - Just Imagine `This is a fantastic story full of unexpected adventures and magical charm; it is pure escapism ... Every page is an absolute joy to read.' - Mr Ripley's Enchanted Blog `The most enchanting story with a perfect balance of magic, heart and imagination ... It will have you hooked from the first page. Brought to life by Sarah Warburton's brilliant illustrations, this book sings inside and out!' - The Book Activist Blog
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 1 stars (out of 5)
