The enchantment of words

The Lost Words by Robert MacfarlaneJackie Morris

This a spell book of words. It is a book that you have to curl up in the armchair and pour over. It is a book that you can’t just just read, but touch and feel, and trace your fingers over the pages to reveal the hidden words. And when you find the hidden words, there is a poem behind each of them that reveals yet more forgotten words.

It is impossible to just read this book. You have to live this book; read the words out loud to yourself as you touch the letters on the pages and marvel at the beautiful, revealing, illustrations.
