Although billed as a children's book The Lord of the Rings: Photo Guide will be enjoyed as much by adults as it is packed with over 70 images from the motion picture. Many of these have not been seen before and are truly stunning, giving the reader a real sense of how detailed the movie is. Direct quotes and text from the script are used to illustrate the movie's plot but thankfully, for those who have not read the books already, these don't reveal anything too major and leave enough surprises in store for the new Tolkien fan. Printed in full colour throughout, this is another worthwhile addition to HarperCollins range of Lord of the Rings books for children.--Jonathan Weir
