Books about J.R.R.Tolkien - Unsung Heroes of The Lord of the Rings: from the page to the screen
The Adventures of Tom Bombadil consists of 16 poems,
three of which are about Tom Bombadil himself, one about a hobbit
and a troll, two about the Man in the Moon, six which represent
simply "adventures," and four which are in the nature
of a bestiary. There is a wealth of good storytelling and mythmaking
here. For those who love The Lord of the Rings, there are hobbits
in the Shire, elves sailing west, and enough familiar places to
give one the feel of Middle Earth as the setting.
