Combined into one volume, this is the definitive collection of Tolkien's five acclaimed modern classic 'fairie' tales in the vein of The Hobbit, read by Derek Jacobi.
The five tales are written with the same skill, quality and charm that made The Hobbit a classic. Largely overlooked because of their short lengths, they are joined here in one volume which reaffirms Tolkien's place as a master storyteller for listeners young and old.
Taken together, this rich collection of work from the author of The Children of Húrin will provide the listener with a fascinating journey into lands as wild and strange as Middle-earth.

"Enjoyable Tolkien short stories"
This was just an enjoyable series of shorts well performed and written in Tolkien's simple, well-written, inimitable English storytelling style. Like Winnie the Pooh and so many English stories, this collection is just nice, good fiction with kind Christian morals deeply hidden in a satisfying story. If you like Tolkien, Narnia, Milne, and the gentler English fiction well worth the credit.
