Mythmaker: The Life of J.R.R. Tolkien, Creator of the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings
by Anne E. Neimark
Join us for our Hobbit Party on Saturday, September 22nd!
Here is the life story of one of the most influential and well-loved writers of the 20th century, J.R.R. Tolkien, author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Now with a redesigned jacket, this new edition of the popular children’s biography coincides with the 75th anniversary of The Hobbit and the release of the new movie!
J. R. R. Tolkien was far more than a fantasy book writer. His lifelong fascination with medieval texts and languages gave him a unique vision and endless inspiration for his tales. His broad interests made possible his creation of faery worlds and entire races of beings, as well as the languages, cultures, and characters that make his books as engaging today as they were fifty years ago. This clear and thoroughly researched biography of the creator of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings recalls the mystery of Tolkien’s imaginary worlds.
