De luxe boxed gift set of Tolkien's most popular and charming
tales; full of wit and humour, giants, dragons, magic and more,
they are collected together for the first time and will delight
readers of all ages. 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.
