Four classic tales by the author of
THE HOBBIT

'The fat and unheroic Farmer Giles of Ham is called upon to do battle with the dragon Chrysophylax; Niggle the painter sets out to paint the perfect tree; Hobbits, princesses, dwarves and trolls partake in the adventures of Tom Bombadil; and Smith of Wootton Major journeys to the land of Faery via the magical ingredients of a giant cake.'
