- about the Shire, fantastic and humorous events, and the merry life of Bombadil. ROVERANDOM - In 1925 while on a family holiday, Tolkien's four-year-old son, Michael, lost his beloved toy dog on the beach. To console him, his father improvised a story about a dog named Roverandom, who makes the mistake of being insolent to the passing Psamathos pronounced with both the p and the s! To teach the dog a lesson, the offended wizard turns Roverandom into a toy dog, frozen in a perpetual begging position, frustratingly small and without a real bark.
As he begins his determined quest to become a real dog again, Roverandom faces experiences that are humbling, eye-opening, and exciting, from a trip to the moon, where he faces the Great White Dragon, to under the sea, where he confronts both the adversarial Sea-serpent and the ill-tempered wizard (who marries the Mer-King's daughter) who originally cast the spell and gets his own just desserts at the end. Available only for a very short time last Christmas, this is not out of print and no telling if will come back again. Quantity shown is all I have left.
