Description
Information
JRR Tolkien's novella about the adventures of a bewitched toy dog.

While on holiday in 1925, four-year-old Michael Tolkien lost his beloved toy dog on the beach at Filey in Yorkshire. To console him, his father, JRR 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, went through several drafts over the years. Now, more than 70 years on, the adventures of Rover - or, for reasons that become clean in the story, "Roverandom" - are published in this paperback format for the first time.

Rich in wit and wordplay, 'Roverandom' is edited and introduced by Christina Scull and Wayne G Hammond and includes Tolkien's own delightful illustrations.
