Product description


Written for Tolkien's son, this story features a real dog, Rover, who is turned into a toy by a wizard and then is transported to the moon. The Man in the Moon renames him "Roverandom" and gives him wings. He sets out on a series of adventures, before finally asking for the spell to be undone.

From the Back Cover

In 1925, while the Tolkien’s were on holiday at Filey in Yorkshire, four-year-old Michael lost his beloved little toy dog. To comfort him, J.R.R. Tolkien wrote 'Roverandom', a story about a real dog, Rover, who is turned into a toy by a wizard. When dropped on the beach by a small boy, the toy is transported to the moon along the path of light the moon makes when it shines over the sea. The Man in the Moon renames him ‘Roverandom’ and gives him wings.

Roverandom sets out on a series of adventures, encountering the Great White Dragon and other moon fauna like giant spiders and dragon moths. Finally, back on earth, Roverandom travels under the sea inside Uin, oldest of the whales, to ask the wizard who changed him into a toy to undo the spell.

‘'Lord of the Rings' buffs will enjoy picking out bits of Nordic mythology and will relish Tolkien’s fabulous sense of landscape.’
