Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Magical Children’s book – The Weather Weaver by Tamsin Mori – brilliant read!

 

Title: The Weather Weaver

Author: Tamsin Mori

My Review:

I really hope this is the first book in a new series – it is such a fun, fantasy story that children (and adults) will love! Stella’s parents take her to stay with her grandfather on remote Shetland island she grew up on. Things have changed though as her Gran has passed away and Grandad is struggling with his grief. He’s angry, nothing she does is right . . . and she’s staying with him for the summer, till her parents return from their job! In her lone exploration of the area, Stella meets Tamar and so begins her adventure, new friendships and magical skills but also danger as a foe emerges, threatening them and all they hold dear!

Just the idea of having a friend, Nimbus, who is a cloud is brilliant enough but having a cloud friend who is like a young puppy in need of love and training, well, that’s magical! This story is superbly written, engaging and somehow believable. There’s fun as Stella learns new skills, there’s danger in being discovered and when The Haken, a local sea witch, starts to threaten the island, Stella is really going to have to learn quickly if she’s to help save the island and the clouds!

This is a magical read, ideal for middle grade readers, fun, engaging, entertaining and one to have them dreaming of developing similar abilities. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and I’ll just say again that I really do hope it will be the start of a series as I’d love to continue to follow Stella’s adventures as she learns more about being a Weather Weaver.

My thanks to UCLan publishing and NetGalley for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.
