2 posts | 1 to read
De luxe boxed gift set of Tolkien s most popular and charming tales; full of wit and humour, giants, dragons, magic and more, they are collected together for the first time and will delight readers of all ages. Farmer Giles did not look like a hero. He was fat and red-bearded and enjoyed a slow, comfortable life. Then one day a rather deaf and short-sighted giant blundered on to his land The Adventures of Tom Bombadil collects hobbit-verses from the Red Book and other poems relating legends and jests of the Shire at the end of the Third Age. Smith of Wootton Major tells of the preparation of the Great Cake to mark the Feast of Good Children and the magical events which follow. Roverandom is 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. The story was written to console Tolkien's four-year-old son, Michael, who lost a beloved toy dog on the beach."

What a beauteous artefact 😍 Ok, so I've already read them all, and I've already got two of the books in the same edition, but hear me out - it was heavily reduced in price as two of the books have printer's ink on the top edge, but those are the two I already have, so I can swap them out! 😃 Bargain! 📚

Oh, was #MountTbr not intended as a challenge to add more books to the shelf? I must have misunderstood 🤗
I bought myself this Tolkien box set to celebrate getting hired for a new job, of course any reason is a good one to add to my Tolkien collection.

JazzFeathers I think this is absolutely the most sensible way to celebrate a new job 😌☝ 3y
Kenyazero Congratulations on the new job! 3y
Linsy Beautiful ✨ and congrats! 3y
