Enter a world of magic, fantasy and amazing creatures. Discover the weird and wonderful legends of the vast and mythical land of Middle-Earth, invented by J.R.R.Tolkien, the exceptional English storywriter. See how Smeagold the Hobbit turns into Gollum, a terrifying creature, and read about the adventures of Smaug, the Dragon and Beorn, the Bear-man! Wait no longer!
"The Magical World of Tolkien is a gorgeous book that used fantastic, full-color art, liftable flaps, and the occasional novelty insert (such as strands of white horsehair on the page about the magical horses of Middle Earth) that takes the reader on a wondrous tour through the magic and majesty of Tolkien's setting for his legendary fantasy novels, "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy. The text tells of wizards, dragons, mortal kingdoms, and much more, condensing Tolkien's rich lore into easily digestible bites. Fantasy lovers will find the artwork captivating and inspirational! Delicate parts make The Magical World of Tolkien less than ideal for weathering the rigors of a lending library, but the masterful way in which it surveys Tolkien's classic works makes it an ideal companion to the series in personal fantasy collections." --Midwest Book Review
