Product description

Review

`The greatest children's book ever written... Funny, frightening, dense with detail and gloriously vivid, it is the one adventure story every eight-year-old should have.'Amanda Craig, The Times `The English-speaking world is divided into those who have read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings and those who are going to read them.'Sunday Times `A finely written saga of dwarves and elves, fearsome goblins and trolls... an exciting epic of travel and magical adventure, all working up to a devastating climax.'Observer

About the Author

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born on the 3rd January, 1892 at Bloemfontein in the Orange Free State, but at the age of four he and his brother were taken back to England by their mother. After his father’s death the family moved to Sarehole, on the south-eastern edge of Birmingham. Tolkien spent a happy childhood in the countryside and his sensibility to the rural landscape can clearly be seen in his writing and his pictures.
