This book is for the Tolkien reader or anyone who enjoys fantastic fairy tales. This edition contains short stories, poetry, and the amazing essay on fairy stories. The book is also very compact, yet remaining very readable- even fits in my back pocket.
One of the poems is completely about Tom Bombadil a very memorable, though not developed character in the Lord of the Rings trilogy; which I might add is very good read. And his short stories are filled with vivid imagery.
Well worth my money and hopefully yours too.
