Bilbo's Last Song by J. R. R. Tolkien


Bilbo's Last Song by J. R. R. Tolkien

While Bilbo embarks on his last journey to the West, his mind is cast back to his first big adventure, The Hobbit . J.R.R Tolkien's beautiful poem is brought to life through Pauline Bayne's stunning illustrations. It's the perfect introduction to the epic fantasy series of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings for younger readers, and a real treat for all Tolkien fans. Baynes' illustrations have been fully restored in this fantastic new edition, which is published to coincide with the film release of The Hobbit in autumn 2012.
