THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLERWINNER OF THE BEAUTIFUL BOOK AWARDBRITISH BOOK AWARDS CHILDREN'S BOOK OF THE YEAR 2018The book that has taken root in schools across Britain, inspired creative thinkers, young and old, and restored the vanishing poetry of nature.

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 new book from the creators of a literary phenomenon.

Available to pre-order now. ***Praise for The Lost Words:'The most beautiful and thought-provoking book I've read this year' Frank Cottrell-Boyce, Observer'Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris have made a thing of astonishing beauty' Alex Preston, Observer 'My top book of the year' Susan Hill, Spectator'Gorgeous to look at and to read.
