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.


Wayne G. Hammond, is Assistant Librarian in the Chapin Library of Rare Books, Williams College. He also lectures on the history of printing and illustration and is a practising book designer and graphic artist – making him the ideal co-author of the acclaimed study of Tolkien’s paintings and drawings, ‘J.R.R. Tolkien: Artist & Illustrator’.

I gave it 5 stars even though i haven't read it, because I trust Tolkien's writing talent to have created such a wonderful book anyway...I enjoyed Lord of teh Rings and the Hobbit..and I am interested in what this sing-songy character has done in his past years.

A wonderful collaboration of poems to read outside on a summer day beneath a tree, or indoors on a rainy day in your favourite leather chair by the fire. Whatever the weather or circumstance, a glorious book to settle down with.
