Mr Bliss

 
9780007440511: Mr Bliss

Mr. Bliss's first outing in his new motor-car, shared with several friends, bears, dogs, and a donkey, though not the Girabbit, proves to be unconventional though not inexpensive.

About the Author:

J.R.R. TOLKIEN (1892–1973) is the creator of Middle-earth and author of such classic and extraordinary works of fiction as The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion. His books have been translated into more than fifty languages and have sold many millions of copies worldwide.

Review:

`Owes a little to Beatrix Potter in its ironical humour and to Edward Lear in the style of its drawings, though Tolkien's approach is less grotesque and more delicate than Lear's.' Humphrey Carpenter`A celebration, in the spirit of The Wind in the Willows, of a vanished, vulgar England where everybody did - and spoke - exactly as he pleased, and life was consequently a series of amiable abrupt collisions, feebly refereed by the police in the shape of Sergeant Boffin. Although the book ought to feel dated, ... dating has done little harm to Tom Kitten or Mr Badger, and there seems no reason why it should here.' Tom. Shippey, Times Literary Supplement

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 2014. CD-Audio. Book Condition: New. J. R. R. Tolkien (illustrator). Unabridged edition. Language: English . Brand New. A brand new audio edition of the children s story, written and illustrated by the author of The Hobbit and Letters from father Christmas, read by Sir Derek Jacobi.Professor J.R.R. Tolkien invented and illustrated the book of Mr Bliss s adventures for his own children when they were very young. The story is reproduced here exactly as he created it.This is a complete and highly imaginative tale of eccentricity. Mr Bliss, a man notable for his immensely tall hats and for the girabbit in his garden, takes the whimsical decision to buy a motor car. But his first drive to visit friends quickly becomes a catalogue of disasters. Some of these could be blamed on Mr Bliss s style of driving, but even he could not anticipate being hijacked by three bears.As for what happened next - the readers, whether young or old, will want to discover for themselves. Thankfully all ended well, and even the yellow motor car with red wheels (to which Mr Bliss has taken an understandable and great dislike), came in useful at the end.
