From the Back Cover

Four classic tales by the author of
THE HOBBIT

'The fat and unheroic Farmer Giles of Ham is called upon to do battle with the dragon Chrysophylax; Niggle the painter sets out to paint the perfect tree; Hobbits, princesses, dwarves and trolls partake in the adventures of Tom Bombadil; and Smith of Wootton Major journeys to the land of Faery via the magical ingredients of a giant cake.'

This definitive collection of J.R.R. Tolkien's acclaimed short stories and poems reaffirms his status as a master storyteller for readers young and old.
