Let Lost Words inspire children to teach us adults how to value our extraordinary planet and every living thing on it - I have great hope they can wake us all up.

I went to St James Primary School in Pokesdown until 1959 and then BSG until I left for University in 1966. I bought this wonderful book for myself and one for my local school in Swansea when it first came out and I do hope you achieve your target soon so that more children can see the goldfinches fly!

With the hope that every school in the UK soon has this remarkable book - and so many of the children grow up loving it - and wanting to write their own versions in the future.
