The Lost Words, named as one of Britain’s favourite pieces of nature writing, was created to celebrate and revive once-common 'natural' words – from acorn and wren, to conker and dandelion – excised from the Oxford Junior Dictionary. With acrostic spell poems designed to be read aloud and hand-painted illustration, the book captures the irreplaceable magic of language and nature for all ages.

The Lost Words message is closely aligned with Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust’s mission to inspire interest in the natural world and encourage children to make nature part of their everyday life.
