Farmer Giles of Ham: And Other Stories


FARMER GILES OF HAM is one of Tolkien's most popular stories. Full of wit and humor and set in the days of giants and dragons, it tells the tale of a reluctant hero who saves his village from the dragon Chrysophylax.

SMITH OF WOOTTON MAJOR tells of baking a Great Cake to mark the Feast of Good Children and the magical events that follow, while LEAF BY NIGGLE recounts the adventures of a painter trying to capture a tree on canvas.

In this fiftieth anniversary edition of the Tolkien classic, Farmer Giles, his mare, and his talking dog go into the valley of the Thames to fight the dragon Chrysophylax. Includes the author's previously unpublished notes for a sequel.
