by J. R. R. Tolkien
Two bewitching fantasies by J.R.R. Tolkien, beloved author of "The Hobbit". In "Smith of Wootten Major", Tolkien explores the gift of fantasy, and what it means to the life and character of the man who receives it. And "Farmer Giles of Ham" tells a delightful mock-heroic tale, where a dragon who invades a town refuses to fight, and a farmer is chosen to slay him.
