OFS "Children" and The Hobbit
Tolkien spends a great deal of time discussing children, and why fantasy/fairy-stories may or may not be just for children, or at least is also acceptable for adults, too.
Earlier on in the semester, we seemed to have pretty much decided, as a class, that The Hobbit was a children's novel.
After reading Tolkien's section "Children" from "On Fairy-Stories"...has anyone changed his/her mind? Why or why not?
