Starfell: Willow Moss and the Lost Day by Dominique Valente

Updated: Feb 26, 2023

Meet Willow Moss, the misfit, youngest and least powerful sister in a family of witches and her hilariously bad-tempered sidekick Oswin, who's magical ability for finding lost things (like keys, or socks, or wooden teeth) is far from 'saving the world' worthy.

But when the most powerful witch in the world of Starfell turns up at Willow’s door and asks for her help, Willow finds the fate of Starfell in her unremarkable hands, because last Tuesday has gone missing and without it the whole universe could unravel!

But can Wilow save the day – by finding the lost one?


Willow Moss and the Lost Day is a stunningly spellbinding tale of magic, adventure and friendship with a remarkable heroine at its heart (not to mention the witches and wizards, trolls and the dragons!) But weaved between the magic is a beautifully raw story about finding love and acceptance in yourself and the magic and strength that comes with it.

Dominique Valente has skillfully created a enchanting new world crackling with warmth and wit, and with it a wonderfully quirky cast of characters who had me in stitches one minute and tears the next!

Accompanied with beautiful black-and-white illustrations by the extremely talented Sarah Warburton this accessible adventure with short chapters and a fast-paced narration is perfect for 8+ readers and fans of Nevermoor.

A dazzling debut, I cannot wait to join Willow on her next magical adventure! Perfect for fans of Nevermoor!
