Tolkien, improvised a story about Rover, a real dog who is magically transformed into a toy and is forced to seek out the wizard who wronged him in order to be returned to normal. Rich in wit and wordplay, "Roverandom" is edited and introduced by Christina Scull and Wayne G. Hammond and includes Tolkiens own delightful illustrations. Now, more than 70 years on, the adventures of Rover - or, for reasons that become clear in the story, Roverandom - are published in A-format for the first time.

For the first time in A-format paperback, J. R. R. Tolkiens novella about the adventures of a bewitched toy dog While on holiday in 1925, four-year-old Michael Tolkien lost his beloved toy dog on the beach at Filey in Yorkshire.
