106 pp, 8 3/4" H. Five illustrations by Tolkien (3 colour, 2 b&w). "To console and distract (his young son who had lost his favorite toy dog), J.R.R. Tolkien improvised a story - the story of Rover, a real dog magically transformed into a toy, who, after many fantastic adventures in search of the wizard who wronged him, at last wins back his doggy life. This charming tale, peopled by a terrible dragon and a wise old whale, by the king of the sea and the Man-in-the-Moon, was a Tolkien family favorite and went through several typewritten drafts over the years. Now, more than seventy years after it was written, the story of Rover - or, as the Man-in-the-Moon fondly called him, Roverandom - is published at last. Rich in wit and wordplay, crowded with thrilling and humorous incident, (it) will delight not only Tolkien's countless admirers but anyone who loves a rollicking yarn well told." Light wrinkling at bottom of spine, tiny wrinkle at top of spine. Dust jacket has wrinkling and a tiny chip at bottom of rear flap-fold - minor edge wrinkling elsewhere, soft crease at top of front flap.
