Lord of the Rings master J.R.R. Tolkien would have been delighted by this book. As a child, he learned Latin and other languages from his mother; his interest in philology persisted and, indeed, strengthened over time. Although he avoided Latin and French roots in his own works, his love for languages that others rudely called dead would have made him an ideal reader for this faithful Latin translation of The Hobbit. Mark Walker's Hobbitus Ille even includes lyrical renderings of Tolkien's songs and verses.
