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.
