Robert Macfarlane’s spell-poems and Jackie Morris’s watercolour illustrations are musical and magical: these are summoning spells, words of recollection, charms of protection.

As in The Lost Words, these "spells" evoke the wonder of everyday nature, their subjects from relatively commonplace, and yet underappreciated, animals, birds, trees and flowers. From Barn Owl to Red Fox, Grey Seal to Snow Hare, Jay to Jackdaw. Finding new shapes, new spaces and new voices with which to inspire the readers' mind.

Written to be read aloud and painted in brushstrokes that call to the forest, field, riverbank and also to the heart, The Lost Spells summons back what is often lost from sight and care, and inspires protection and action on behalf of the natural world.

Above all, it celebrates a sense of wonder, reminding us of nature's power to amaze, console and bring joy.
That it is all within our grasp, not to be allowed to slip away.


Suitable for all ages

The Lost Words

“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 them gone! The words were being lost…” A collaboration between Jackie Morris and Robert Macfarlane, The Lost Words is a very special illustrated collection of spell-poems to re-wild the language of children. All over the country, there are words disappearing from children's lives.

The Silent Unwinding

Jackie Morris’ book The Silent Unwinding, is designed to be a companion to The Unwinding.
