This is a definitive collection of J. R. R. Tolkien’s famous shorter works. The five tales, written with the same skill, quality and hallmarks as The Hobbit, a favourite of many readers, create such a wonderful world that leaving it is next to impossible. Roverandom, a toy dog travelling to the Moon and into the deep sea, finds new friends and learns not to anger wizards; Farmer Giles of Ham, having unwittingly managed to scare off an evil giant, is forced to pretend to be a hero and fight a dragon; The Adventures of Tom Bombadil tells about the fantastic travels of the old merry fellow and his meetings with hobbits, princesses, dwarves and trolls; Smith of Wootton Major is lucky enough to swallow a magic star, which becomes his pass to the Land of Faery; and Leaf by Niggle is all that remains in this world from the perfect tree of a little artist who, like all of us, has a long and inevitable journey ahead of him. These works are supplemented with the essay On Fairy-Stories in which the famous author of The Lord of the Rings outlines the theoretical principles of his creative work.
