Publisher Description

Farmer Giles did not look like a hero. He was fat and red-bearded and enjoyed a slow, comfortable life. Then one day a rather deaf and short-sighted giant blundered on to his land...

The Adventures of Tom Bombadil collects hobbit-verses from the `Red Book' and other poems relating legends and jests of the Shire at the end of the Third Age.

Smith of Wootton Major tells of the preparation of the Great Cake to mark the Feast of Good Children and the magical events which follow.

Roverandom is a real dog who is magically transformed into a toy and is forced to seek out the wizard who wronged him in order to be returned to normal. The story was written to console Tolkien's four-year-old son, Michael, who lost a beloved toy dog on the beach.

Author Biography

J.R.R.Tolkien (1892-1973) was a distinguished academic, though he is best known for writing The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion, plus other stories and essays. His books have been translated into over 60 languages and have sold many millions of copies worldwide.

Review

Praise for books in this treasury: "Tolkien at his relaxed and ingenious best" The Times

"[Roverandom] is an old-fashioned story, yet it still speaks freshly today... would leap to life when read aloud to a child" Independent

"[Smith of Wootton Major] may be compared to the most delicate miniature but it is one of a rare kind: the more closely it is examined the more it reveals the grandeur of its conception. Whoever reads it at eight will still be going back to it at eighty" New Statesman
