The Lost Words

by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris
£20.00   hardback  Penguin Books Ltd (Hamish Hamilton Ltd) (2017)

The Lost Words by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris THE SUNDAY TIMES TOP TEN BESTSELLER
 
From bestselling Landmarks author Robert Macfarlane and acclaimed artist & author Jackie Morris.
 
All over the country, there are words disappearing from children's lives. These are the words of the natural world - Dandelion, Otter, Bramble and Acorn, all gone. The rich landscape of wild imagination and wild play is rapidly fading from our children's minds.
 
The Lost Words stands against the disappearance of wild childhood. It is a joyful celebration of nature words and the natural world they invoke. With acrostic spell-poems by award-winning writer Robert Macfarlane and hand-painted illustration by Jackie Morris, this enchanting book captures the irreplaceable magic of language and nature for all ages.

"Gorgeous to look at and to read. Give it to a child to bring back the magic of language - and its scope."
(Jeanette Winterson, Guardian)
