Three of J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic tales available in a uniquely stylish boxed set to delight adults and children alike.
Bilbo Baggins has taken his place among the ranks of the immortals of children’s fiction. Written by Professor Tolkien for his own children, The Hobbit met with instant critical acclaim when first published in 1937.
Now, for the first time, we are publishing the world’s best loved childrens’ tale alongside two other less well-known, but no less entertaining, Tolkien masterpieces. Each tale is written with the same skill, quality and hallmarks that made Tolkien’s Hobbit a classic. Largely overlooked because of their relatively short lengths, they are finally together in a slipcase which reaffirms Tolkien’s place as a master storyteller for readers young and old.

‘The Hobbit belongs to a very small class of books which have nothing in common save that each admits us to a world of its own. Its place is with Alice and The Wind in the Willows.’
Times Literary Supplement
‘One of the best loved characters in English fiction… a marvellous fantasy adventure’
‘Finely written saga of dwarves and elves, fearsome goblins and trolls… an exciting epic of travel, magical adventure, working up to a devastating climax’
