The Keeper of Wild Words


An A Mighty Girl 2020 Book of the Year 

A touching tale of a grandmother and her granddaughter exploring and cherishing the natural world. 

Words, the woods, and the world illuminate this quest to save the most important pieces of our language—by saving the very things they stand for.

When Mimi finds out her favorite words—simple words, like apricot, blackberry, buttercup—are disappearing from the English language, she elects her granddaughter Brook as their Keeper. And did you know? The only way to save words is to know them.
