Book Description:
In 1925, while on vacation with his family on the Yorkshire coast, four year old Michael Tolkien lost his favorite toy, a little lead dog he was reluctant to put down even to dig in the sand. To console and distract him, his father, 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 life. This charming tale, peopled by a wise old whale and a terrible dragon, by the king of the sea and the Man in the Moon, was a Tolkien family favorite, going through several typewritten drafts over many years. In 1936, Tolkien submitted it to his British publishers as a possible follow up to The Hobbit. What his publishers really wanted, however, was another story about Middle earth, and so he set aside this little book to begin his masterwork, The Lord of the Rings.
