Tales From the Perilous Realm
Never before published in a single volume, Tolkien's four novellas (Farmer Giles of Ham, Leaf by Niggle, Smith of Wootton Major, and Roverandom) and one book of poems (The Adventures of Tom Bombadil) are gathered together for the first time, in a fully illustrated volume. This new, definitive collection of works -- which had appeared separately, in various formats, between 1949 and 1998 -- comes with a brand-new foreword and endmatter, and with a series of detailed pencil illustrations by Alan Lee.

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.
