The Wordsworths

Written by Mick Manning

Illustrated by Brita Granstroem

The Wordsworths Synopsis

Celebrate William Wordsworth's 250th birthday with this beautiful retelling of his life. Produced to coincide with the 250th birthday of Wordsworth in 2020, this book adapts the lyrical diary of his sister, Dorothy Wordsworth, detailing their life together roaming the beautiful Lake District.

Lush Lake District and London landscapes, and carefully researched costumes bring the era to life, while extracts from longer works such as The Prelude tie into the national curriculum.
