An invitation to Tolkien's world This rich treasury includes Tolkien's most beloved short fiction plus his essay on fantasy Publisher's Note Tolkien's Magic Ring by Peter S Beagle The Homecoming of Beorhtn Excellent compilation of some of Tolkien's shorter works Farmer Giles of Ham is a funny adventure story The Adventures of Tom Bombadil is a collection of funny epic nonsense and sad poems only two of which are actually about Tom Bombadil Leaf by Niggle is my all time favorite short story of Tolkien's He's kind of poking fun at himself working so hard on his legendarium that he gets grumpy when other duties get in the way but in the end he learns what is important Niggle also learns that being creative is valued by God This ties in directly to Tolkien's main point in his essay On Fairy Stories He argued that fantasy is its own art form and shouldn't be relegated to children's stories Instead creating fantasy worlds is a reflection of our creator He says Fantasy remains a human right we make in our measure and in our derivative mode because we are made and not only made but made in the image and likeness of a Maker

The Tolkien ReaderOth Beorhthelm's Son Tree and Leaf On Fairy Stories Leaf by Niggle Farmer Giles of Ham The Adventures of Tom Bombadil The Adventures of Tom Bombadil Bombadil Goes Boating Errantry Princess Mee The Man in t I debated on how I should rate this book I really enjoyed a couple of the stories but liked the poetry less well I've never really been a fan of poetry even that within Tolkien's Middle Earth books However Leaf By Niggle and Farmer Giles of Ham were so enjoyable that they bumped this volume up to four stars In fact Leaf is so good that I would rate it as one of the best short stories that I have ever read
