Macfarlane and Morris have created a treasure, something so precious that we need to hand this on to future generations with great care, but also great urgency. We are losing our wild places, our wildlife, and now the words that even name them. When Macfarlane discovered that the Oxford junior dictionary intended to leave out some nature words and replace them with tech words, he set out to reintroduce them via his poems, so that words like acorn, dandelion and kingfisher could remain alive in our vocabulary. Brought to life by the most beautiful illustrations, a wild world that only Jackie Morris can evoke, this is a spell book for modern life. ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty
