THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER ‘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 ‘The most beautiful and thought-provoking book I’ve read this year’ Frank Cottrell-Boyce, Observer ‘My top book of the year’ Susan Hill, Spectator 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. ‘Gorgeous’ Observer 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. ‘Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris have made a thing of astonishing beauty’ Alex Preston, Observer
