About the Author:

J.R.R.Tolkien (1892-1973) was a distinguished academic, though he is best known for writing The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion, plus other stories and essays. His books have been translated into over 40 languages and have sold many millions of copies worldwide.

From AudioFile:

Tolkien originally created the tale of ROVERANDOM in 1925 to soothe his son, Michael, after the child lost his toy dog while on vacation. It is the story is of a real dog, Rover, who is turned into a toy by a wizard. Seventy-five years later, the playful vibrance of this supernatural adventure is still new and wonderous for all Tolkein lovers, and by all lovers of masterful storytelling. Derek Jacobi delves into his narration with infectious energy. His character voices are sometimes silly but always somehow appropriate for the bizarre creatures Tolkien has created. ROVERANDOM is a great family collectible. R.A.P. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
