This de luxe collector's edition includes the first edition text and features an exclusive colour frontispiece illustration on a fold-out sheet. The book is quarterbound, with a specially commissioned motif stamped in three foils on the front board, and is presented in a matching slipcase.



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 finally together in a volume which reaffirms Tolkien's place as a master storyteller for readers young and old.




Roverandom is a toy dog who, enchanted by a sand sorcerer, gets to explore the world and encounter strange and fabulous creatures.
Farmer Giles of Ham is fat and unheroic, but - having unwittingly managed to scare off a short-sighted giant - is called upon to do battle when a dragon comes to town;
The Adventures of Tom Bombadil tells in verse of Tom's many adventures with hobbits, princesses, dwarves and trolls;
Leaf by Niggle recounts the strange adventures of the painter Niggle who sets out to paint the perfect tree;
Smith of Wootton Major journeys to the Land of Faery thanks to the magical ingredients of the Great Cake of the Feast of Good Children.


This new collection is fully illustrated throughout by Oscar-winning artist, Alan Lee, who provides a wealth of pencil drawings to bring the stories to life as he did so memorably for The Hobbit and The Children of Hurin. Alan also provides an Afterword, in which he opens the door into illustrating Tolkien's world.


Taken together, this rich collection of tales from the author of The Children of Hurin will provide the reader with a fascinating journey into lands as wild and strange as Middle-earth.

Medlemsvurdering:
Spør du meg, var Tolkien en av de fremste forfatterne verden noen gang vil få se, med historier som "Silmarillion" og "Ringenes Herre", som har gledet og underholdet mennesker i generasjoner. "Tales from the perilous realm" kjøpte jeg først og fremst på grunn av bokens nydelige tittel, en tiltrekning og en nysgjerrighet som gjorde dette til et kjøp jeg måtte unne meg, da prisen også var ganske så lav. I denne boken får leseren fordype seg i fire historier, alle omhandlende skikkelser fra tidligere bøker, slik at man nesten føler at man sitter og leser historier om gamle kjente. Min favoritt i denne boken er nok historien om Tom Bombadil, en skikkelse så annerledes og fascinerende at det knapt kan beskrives. Tolkien skriver så levende, sprudlende, nydelig og underholdende at det ikke kan gjøres bedre!
