This wonderful and charming book by the Grandfather of fantasy is a story about a dog that had been turned into a toy by a wizard and then sent by a 'sand-sorcerer' to the moon and under the sea. This is what's written on the inside flap of the book I own.
I have tried to read this wonderful hard cover edition I own on my bookshelves; however it being a children's novel, I found it hard to get into it. Tolkien's words are still rich and full of description and wonderfully colourful for a child's imagination to grow within and around. And I've found on Bookfound.com that this particular copy - with a dustcover that is still intact and in very good condition - is worth between $40 and $55 Australian. There is a little wear where it's been bumped around along the top and bottom; but that's to be expected.
