Life & Works of J.R.R. Tolkien History Bites
Taking a bite-sized approach, this accessible text follows Tolkien’s life, and then provides synopses for Tolkien’s major writings: The Hobbit, the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and The Silmarillion. The text is an engaging and worthwhile introduction to Tolkien. Although the text is a large, 10-point type, the font is more unusual; preview our graphic samples for your student. Originally written by a 14-year-old, this revised edition contains new artwork and photos, with slight text improvements. The additional resources of pre-chapter vocabulary, a fun facts section with review questions, and a glossary help section permit students to glean so much history that they can prep to read Tolkien for themselves.
