The Lost Spells

Nature writer Robert MacFarlane and illustrator Jackie Morris created The Lost Words in 2017, with the intent of reintroducing a natural vocabulary to a young generation for whom they felt it had been gradually lost. Through deeply humane poems paired with warm illustrations, MacFarlane and Morris invited readers into the space where the enchanting natural world meets the expansive imagination. MacFarlane and Morris describe this follow-up book, The Lost Spells, as "the little sister" of The Lost Words. Crafted with the same tenderness as its sibling, The Lost Spells invites readers into a meditation on their interdependence with nature and their capacity to appreciate all that dwells outside of the boundaries of their daily lives--like the goldfinch, the feathered thorn moth, the white willow and the little egret. --Emma Levy, writer
