11-year-old Stella has returned home to Shetland to spend the summer with her Grandpa, but it's nothing like she remembers. Grandpa is lost in his grief for Gran, the island is bleak and Stella feels trapped, until she encounters an old woman, Tamar, who can spin rainbows and call hurricanes. With the help of Nimbus, a feisty young storm cloud, Stella begins to learn the craft of weather weaving. But when her cloud brain-fogs Grandpa and The Haken (a sea witch) starts to close in, she realises that magic comes with big responsibilities. It will take all her heart and courage to face the coming storm...



This was a very - and I highlight very! - good book, particularly for me. It perfectly hits the nail on the head with the sort of book that I enjoy: set in a remote place in the real world where characters have adventures which may or may not take place in the real world but which are fantasy of sorts. This book was so wonderfully written with descriptive language used throughout and written in the eyes of Stella (the main character) without using first person, which is quite difficult to do in my opinion. The plot was exciting and while there were perils, the book felt at the same time as a 'happy novel' that I can read whenever I like and which still leaves me feeling happy at the end! Overall, a wonderful book which I would highly recommend.

A dramatic book and its own personal flare

The Weather Weaver is essentially a Moana tale for Shetland; a coming-of-age story, intertwined with island myths and hidden magic. At its heart, the novel tackles the following themes: independence, the meaning of home, and the fallibility of grown-ups. A spell-bounding story with a unique concept and fantastic protagonist. i would recommend this book to my friends

It’s super exiting and it’s amazing how Stella doesn’t like Nimbus (the cloud) and at the end gives every thing she’s got to protect Nimbus. Nimbus because it’s so cool all the moves it can use! Yes and it would be cool for others to know about it!

I really enjoyed this book because it was magical. This book is fiction and the character I liked most was Tamar because she believed that getting a cloud was possible! I would recommend it for people who like Shetland magic and mysteries!!

Director Diamond Menace 03.04.2022


Stella is a great character because she is the main character and she is going to her Grandfathers by herself. It is exciting as she catches a cloud and make it angry and doesn't realise it is a storm cloud. I would recommend this book as it is good to read.

General Dragon Ridiculous 02.12.2021

Countess Amazonia Costa-Rica 17.09.2021


I would recommend it to people who like magic and weather because there's lots of interesting things about them. My favourite character is Stella because she finds her own cloud and fights a sea witch. Read this book to find out what happens.
