Book Thoughts: The Lost Words (Robert Macfarlane & Jackie Morris)

Macfarlane, Robert - The Lost Words★★★★★★☆

Title:  The Lost Words
Author: Robert Macfarlane – Illustrator: Jackie Morris
Genre: Non-Fiction / Poetry / Picture Book
First published: 2017
Edition: Hardback, published by Hamish Hamilton

The reason I bought this books was because of the stunning illustrations, but it took me way too long to actually pick it up to read the poems. Having finally done so, it is the combination of the two that make this book so magical.

It combines three of the things I love: nature, poetry that makes sense to me and beautiful artwork.

My favourite poems were the ones about the Kingfisher, the Newt and the Willow. There were a couple that did not quite grab be as much, but this is such a gorgeous book, that I will treasure it forever!

The only problem is that it is so big! Where to put it?
