A gorgeous coffee table book If I had a big, beautiful house with a fancy living room, this would definitely be on my coffee table, and yes, I would let young visitors read it if I felt confident they could handle a book with care I still remember sitting and looking longingly at big, beautiful books I wasn t allowed to touch when my parents went visiting, and I had to sit like a living doll while the adults went yak, yak, yak about grownup things. Nice illustrations I ve only seen the movies so I learned a little bit. .Read Pdf ♂ Tolkien's World: A Guide to the Peoples and Places of Middle-Earth ☨ Tolkien s World takes readers on an incredible journey through the realms of Middle earth and back to a time when elves, dwarves, wizards, and a small, courageous people known as hobbits battled the forces of evil This lavishly illustrated guide brings you the people and places from The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings Explore Middle Earth, from the rolling hills of the Shire to the desolate ash plains of Mordor Discover the secrets of a world where the elves roamed through enchanted forests and dragons slept in dark caverns under the mountains With stunning artwork that re imagines the places and people of Middle Earth, Tolkien s World is ideal for hobbit fans, big and smallOpen the pages of Tolkien s World and meet Bilbo Baggins, the hero of The Hobbit Then find out about Gandalf the wizard and his incredible magic powers, uncover the story of the unfortunate Gollum or learn about magical weapons, such as Gandalf s sword Glamdring This meticulously researched guide lets you discover the amazing peoples and creatures that inhabit Middle earth, from friendly elves and stout hearted dwarves to the deadly dragon Smaug and the evil Sauron Packed with adventure and lore, Tolkien s World is a must for all Hobbit Not going to revisit this.Some images were incredible and others were a stark contrast Simple information would be great for a beginner to Tolkien s world I d say it was intended for 5 9 year olds. A fantastic yet simply understood retelling of the Tolkien works Has left some things out, but I m guessing it s going along with what didn t make it into any of the six movies either.
