Oh my goodness this was an adorable readIt is a book for very young children so don t expect anything heavy and involved I finished the book in two hours an hour a sittingThat said one of the things I really really really love about Tolkien is that he doesn t pander to his audience There are words and puns usages and phrases that one would think that you would have to be older to understand and appreciate Tolkien however does not ever so insult his audience His complicated words and humorous phrases are intended to be read to and by I would assume young childrenI love that as I ve probably stated before I as a young girl hated reading books that treated me like I was an imbecile with the vocabulary of your average orang utan I hated it as much as being talked down to by adults and not taken seriouslyIn fact I read the foreword to the book and in it the editors noted that Tolkien specifically decried the dumbing down of vocabulary in children s books I feel I would have liked the man almost as much as I love his worksAs a children s book it is sublime I seriously want children just so I can read them this book Just kidding That s not the only reason The point is this book is a wonderful tale from a wonderful imaginationJust be sure to remind yourself that you are reading a book intended for children and you shouldn t be ever disappointedOh and if you re a Tolkien nut enamoured with his works like I am do take the time to read the foreword It sheds some light on how all of Tolkien s work including this one are interrelated It s simply fascinating

I m ashamed to admit it took me years to read Roverandom but I m so glad I finally did I actually started the book years ago at the repeated insistence of my now best friend but I only made it a third of the way through before it went back to the library I wasn t interested enough to check it out again and finish it then though I always meant to As a teenager I just wasn t very interested in any Tolkien except Middle earth even though I was a die hard Tolkien fan and was very much obsessed with Middle earth Tolkien was and still is my very favorite so I really should have read Roverandom sooner than this But I did at last It happened because I introduced my little sister to Tolkien for the first time by beginning our read aloud of The Hobbit She was head over heels in love with it from the first page and since she loves animals and fantasy I knew she would like Roverandom As soon as I told her about the book she was so excited to read it and I resolved to finally read the whole thing myself as well When I got it for her she loved it and she even read the whole thing with excitement and without losing interestwhich is unusual for her attention span That is a testament to how good the book is All that to say my little sister the budding new Tolkien fan beat me the veteran Wow smiles sheepishlyBut I did read it from the beginning and I finished it this time And unlike before I enjoyed and appreciated it as much as it deserves Things I liked I loved the dog Roverandom so very much He s so sweet and I enjoyed his point of view and his way of thinking about his experiences and acuaintances And I loved seeing him grow up and become wiser as the story goes on I enjoyed the other characters very much as well the sweet wise cantankerous strange annoying and foolish characters alike I especially loved Little Boy Two and the Man in the Moon Also Psamathos and by the end Artaxerxes I laughed or smiled almost constantly while reading the book I loved the wry wit hilarious satire tongue in cheek references and parodies and comical events and people The amusing clever humor throughout was one of my very favorite things about the book I love that it has a wide range of humor that do you like children and adults alike as well as making adults of the time laugh at references a child would not understand I enjoyed the notes at the back that helped me understand all the hilarious references to history and to the contemporary culture Tolkien lived in All the parts with Roverandom and his little boy and their love for and devotion to one another So much sweetness The whole feel and heart and theme of the book It is so utterly sweet and golden and wonderful and heartwarming It was such a comforting read especially when I wasn t feeling well Illustrations by Tolkien himself I have always adored his artwork for his books and his beautiful style of illustration And his handwriting Some of the characters were cold difficult unhelpful and unkind toward Rover just exactly like real life and written in such a skilled and rare way I appreciated so much how humorously perceptive of and accurate to real life Tolkien s portrayal was And sweet Roverandom s downcast reaction to the cold shoulders and conflict was so sweet and relatable The sea dog s tale of his own origin and adventures since I love Vikings and history and I love Tolkien s far greater love of them both And the sea dog himself was so sweet and wise especially his devotion to his master The wizards as I mentioned before and also the relationships and humorous conflict between them It made me laugh hard during the part when one wizard was telling another wizard about the third wizard s foolish shenanigans The writing style which was both exuisite and like a story being told aloud and the lovely descriptions Tolkien s insertion of himself and his family at the center of the book It is so sweet I adore the story behind the book that he told the tale to his sons to comfort his son Michael after the loss of his toy dog at the seaside The roots of the tale are very evident in even the settings of the story The perfect joyous ending I guessed and hoped that the story would end a certain way and it did There was literally nothing I didn t like All in all Roverandom is a wonderful humorous sweet and gently magical tale that will appeal to Tolkien fans and non Tolkien fans alike It makes a wonderful read aloud for parents to read to children of any age even very young children and it can be enjoyed by anyone from young children to adultsUpdated Rating I m raising my star rating from 4 stars to at least 45 stars because in the few months since I ve read it this book has remained fabulous in my memory There was really nothing to keep it from being a very high rating it s a great book well worthy of Tolkien s caliber and super sweet Some books are forgettable and the star rating drops after a few months but it s the opposite with this one
