Publisher's Description

In 1925, four-year-old Michael Tolkien lost his beloved toy dog on the beach. To console him, his father, J.R.R. Tolkien, improvised a story about Rover, 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. This charming tale, peopled by a sand-sorcerer and a terrible dragon, by the king of the sea and the Man-in-the-Moon, endured several drafts over the years. Now, more than seventy years later, the adventures of Rover are published for the first time. Rich in wit and wordplay, Roverandom is edited and introduced by Christina Scull and Wayne G. Hammond and illustrated with Tolkien's own delightful drawings.

    Tolkien was a master at everything he wrote and this is another example. It has remained a family favorite since day one! This is wonderful story that takes you away on another fantastic journey full of heart and values. Perfect for all ages! This is another lesser-known Tolkien treasure!

    While not exactly what older Tolkien fans are looking for, this is a sweet little story and a great way to introduce young children to the master storyteller.

    Looking for another Tolkien epic adventure? This is not it. But it is the fun story about a dog who gets tranSformed into a toy and goes on some very wild adventures! If you like children's stories, need something to read to your 6 to 10 year old that will hold their attention, or if you are simply a fan of Papa Tolkien and have read everything else, this is a nice well written fantasy story.
