Roverandom

One of my favorite memories from being a kid is my mom reading Roverandom to me and my brothers. While reading the Artist and Illustrator book, I felt nostalgic because of the drawings and paintings from the story of Rover. Tolkien wrote the story for his son after a toy dog was lost. The story is about Rover, a little dog who is turned into a toy by a wizard and must embark on a journey to find the wizard and go back to being a real dog. During his journey, Rover rides on the back of seagull, even adventuring all the way to the moon! Tolkien illustrated the story and it was finally published in 1998.

What are some of Tolkien's works that we are not covering in class that you've read and enjoyed?
