Five less known writings from .J.R.R. Tolkien with nice pictures by Alan Lee.The introduction helps to explain some things."Roverandom" is a short novel."Farmer Giles of Ham", "Smith of Wootton Major" and"Leaf by Niggle" are short stories."The Adventures of Tom Bombadil" is basically many poems.There is lots of Alan Lee illustrations in that one particulary.I personally did not understand the essay on fairy stories to well.It is quite in depth.The is also an afterword by Alan Lee.
