For the first time in A - format paperback, J.R.R. 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, J.R.R.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 clear in the story, 'Roverandom' - are published in A 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.
