BRITISH BOOK AWARDS CHILDREN'S BOOK OF THE YEAR 2018

A timeless, beautifully designed book for children and adults alike, The Lost Words is a gift that will be pored over and cherished for years to come.

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. A wild landscape of imagination and play is rapidly fading from our children's minds.

The Lost Words stands against the disappearance of wild childhood. It is a joyful celebration - in art and word - of nearby nature and its wonders. With acrostic spell-poems by award-winning writer Robert Macfarlane and illustrations by Jackie Morris , this enchanting book evokes the irreplaceable magic of language and nature for all ages.

*** Discover The Lost Spells, the magical companion book from the creators of a literary phenomenon . ***
