A beautiful children's book, and although aimed at children I feel that any Tolkien fan, like me, would love this story and its illustrations

Wow! So, I usually try to write a post on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but something went totally crazy yesterday. It felt like a Friday. Seriously! I kept thinking that I had to work and that my sister was coming home for the weekend. Nope! It was only Thursday. Plus, I had a brother and sister-in-la...

I read an early copy of this book via work, with no obligation to leave a personal review. This is a quietly told story about J. R. R. Tolkien, with pitch-perfect, soft illustrations to accompany it. The words and the illustrations both take an understated tone, but are absolutely gorgeous. It's l...

First sentence: John Ronald was a boy who loved horses. And trees. And strange sounding words. But most of all, John Ronald loved dragons. Premise/plot: John Ronald's Dragons is a picture book biography of J.R.R. Tolkien the author of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. The time covered in this pic...

This was a very nice picture book biography, and the notes at the back show that it was fairly well researched. I don't know that it will work for my middle school readers-- they need more information about Tolkien's life, work, and impact. I am somewhat confused about the audience for this one,...

Wonderful, wonderful illustrations accompany the story of the early to middle life of J.R.R. Tolkien. I loved learning of Tolkien's obsession with dragons all the way through his invention of Smaug. He led a very interesting life (full of loss!) and the additional notes at the end only added to h...

Beautifully simple book! It ties dragons into young John Ronald's live seamlessly through gentle language and peaceful illustrations. My heart swelled reading it, and I can't wait to read it aloud to young readers!
