When Mimi finds out that her favourite words - simple words, like apricot, blackberry, buttercup - are disappearing from the English language, she elects her granddaughter Brook as their Keeper. As Keeper, it's Brook's job to pass on the importance of protecting, loving, and celebrating the natural world. Words, the woods, and the world illuminate this quest to save our language - by saving the very things it stands for. A lyrical, inspiring, heartwarming picture book, The Keeper of Wild Words is an ode to the environment and language itself.
