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 `I ADORE THIS BOOK!' - Laura Ellen Anderson, author of the Amelia Fang series `Such a lovely book ... it's very fast-paced, it's very funny, it's very charming and I really believed in the world of Starfell ... I can't wait to read the next thing that Dominique writes.' - Robin Stevens, author of Murder Most Unladylike. `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
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)
