Blurb – From Dust Jacket Flap
While on holiday in 1925 young Michael Tolkien lost his beloved toy dog on the beach. To console him, his father, J.R.R. Tolkien, invented a story about a real dog who is turned into a toy by a wizard and sent by a ‘sand-sorcerer’ to the moon and under the sea.

More than 70 years later, the adventures of the dog Rover, also known as ‘Roverandom’, are now published for the first time. They have been edited from the original typescript by Christina Scull and Wayne Hammond, who relate the story to sources ranging from the Norse sagas to E. Nesbit, and link it also to Tolkien’s other fiction, including The Hobbit, the ‘Father Christmas’ letters, and The Silmarillion. The book also includes five illustrations by Tolkien himself.

Entertaining and rich in wordplay, Roverandom will delight all readers who love a clever tale, and will be welcomed by Tolkien’s many admirers of all ages.
