The Lost Spells

Robert Macfarlane, Jackie Morris

The Lost Spells is a pocket-sized treasure that introduces a beautiful new set of natural spell-poems and artwork. Each “spell” conjures an animal, bird, tree or flower with which we share our lives and landscapes.
Written to be read aloud, The Lost Spells above all celebrates a sense of wonder, bearing witness to nature’s power to amaze, console and bring joy.

A beautiful poetry book. Lots of acrostic poems, would have been nice to have a wider variety of poems styles. But the illustrations are truly stunning!

I thought it was the best book of poetry I’ve ever read in my entire life!! The pictures are well illustrated and the writing was very well written. I think anybody who loves nature will love it.
