The Lost Words by Jackie Morris and Robert Macfarlane
Ever dreamed of being otter? That utter underwater thunderbolt, that shimmering twister?
"Once upon a time, words began to vanish from the language of children. They disappeared so quietly that at first almost no one noticed - fading away like water on stone. The words were those that children used to name the natural world around them: acorn, adder, bluebell, bramble, conker - gone! Fern, heather, kingfisher, otter, raven, willow, wren..... all of the gone! The words were be-coming lost...."
The Lost words is a spell book the seeks to conjure the near-lost magic, beauty and strangeness of nature that surrounds us, for readers and art appreciators both young and old.
