Available for the first time in one volume, this is the definitive collection of Tolkien's five acclaimed modern classic 'fairie' tales in the vein of 'The Hobbit', fully corrected and reset for this edition and all beautifully illustrated in pencil by the award-winning artist, Alan Lee. The five tales are written with the same skill, quality and charm that made The Hobbit a classic. Largely overlooked because of their short lengths, they are finally together in a volume which reaffirms Tolkien's place as a master storyteller for readers young and old. / Roverandom is a toy dog who, enchanted by a sand sorcerer, gets to explore the world and encounter strange and fabulous creatures.; / Farmer Giles of Ham is fat and unheroic, but - having unwittingly managed to scare off a short-sighted giant - is called upon to do battle when a dragon comes to town; / The Adventures of Tom Bombadil tells in verse of Tom's many adventures with hobbits, princesses, dwarves and trolls; / Leaf by Niggle recounts the strange adventures of the painter Niggle who sets out to paint the perfect tree; / Smith of Wootton Major journeys to the Land of Faery thanks to the magical ingredients of the Great Cake of the Feast of Good Children. This new collection is fully illustrated throughout by Oscar-winning artist, Alan Lee, who provides a wealth of pencil drawings to bring the stories to life as he did so memorably for The Hobbit and The Children of Hurin. Alan also provides an Afterword, in which he opens the door into illustrating Tolkien's world. World-renowned Tolkien author and expert, Tom Shippey, takes the reader through the hidden links in the tales to Tolkien's Middle-earth in his Introduction, and recounts their history and themes.; Lastly, included as an appendix is Tolkien's most famous essay, "On Fairy-stories", in which he brilliantly discusses fairy-stories and their relationship to fantasy. Taken together, this rich collection of new and unknown work from the author of The Children of Hurin will provide the reader with a fascinating journey into lands as wild and strange as Middle-earth.

    O avtorju

    -J.R.R. Tolkien-

    J.R.R. Tolkien (1892–1973) je oče sodobne fantazijske književnosti in skorajda ne potrebuje predstavitve. Rodil se je v Južn Afriki, kjer je njegov oče delal kot vodja banke. Pri treh letih se je z materjo in bratom vrnil v Anglijo, kjer je ostal vse življenje.Že kot mlad je pokazal veselje do starih jezikov, ki ga je zaznamovalo z izbiro poklica. Diplomiral je iz stare norveščine, sodeloval pa je tudi pri pisanju Oxfordovega angleškega slovarja. Poučeval je staro angleščino, obenem pa še vrsto drugih jezikov. A jezike si je tudi izmišljal. Tako je v okviru Srednjega sveta, kamor je postavil vse svoje pripovedi od Hobita in Gospdarja prstanov do Sllmariliona, ustvaril vrsto jezikov in pisav, ki so jih uporabljala tamkajšnja bitja. Poleg fantazijskih del je napisal vrsto znanstvenih razprav, pero pa je uporabil tudi za pisanje pesmi. Leta 1972 je prejel častni naziv komendnik
    Britanskega imperija
    (CBE) in častni doktorat Oxfordske univerze iz književnosti. Umrl je leto kasneje, njegovo literarno zapuščino pa je v upravljanje prevzel njegov najmlajši sin Christopher.
