The Lost Spells | Nature, Poetry, Beautiful Puzzle
This 1000-piece jigsaw takes as its source, the glossary section of the Lost Spells book along with Macfarlane's extraordinary poems relating to each animal that is illustrated. He calls his poems ‘spells’ as he states that the more we read them to our children, the more likely our children will then venture outside to find these things, interact or observe them and then know the words again.
The jigsaw puzzle features illustrations of over 50 different species of bird, animal and flora. It also identifies each separate item with both their common and their latin names.
- Written by Robert MacFarland and illustrated by Jackie Morris.
