The definitive collection of J R R Tolkein's four acclaimed modern classic fairy tales, finally together in a volume which reaffirms his place as a master storyteller for readers young and old.
The fat and unheroic 'Farmer Giles of Ham' is called upon to do battle with the dragon Chrysophylax; Niggle the painter sets out to paint the perfect tree in 'Leaf by Niggle;' hobbits, princesses, dwarves and trolls partake in 'The Adventures of Tom Bombadil;' and 'Smith of Wootton Major' journeys to the Land of Faery via the magical ingredients of a giant cake.
