This one is tricky to review
When reviewing a piece of children's literature, especially a piece by a world-famous author and one that was originally created, not for the general public but to console his young son on the loss of a beloved toy, how can you be fair? Do you let the reputation of the author boost the score? Do you judge this book by the standard of his other books?
This is not a prequel to The Hobbit, but it is a quick, fun read with lots of emphasis on fantasy.
This book can be found on Amazon.com here: The Pocket Roverandom
I rate this one 3 stars out of 5.
