A brand new shiny is in Bookwyrm’s Hoard!
And what a treasure this storybook biography of J.R.R. Tolkien’s life turned out to be! Between the delightful illustrations and the accessible text AND the author’s/illustrator’s extensive notes, there is something for lovers of The Hobbit of every age!
Published in 2017 by Roaring Book Press, John Ronald’s Dragons: The Story of J.R.R. Tolkien is a remarkable work of author, Caroline McAlister, and illustrator, Eliza Wheeler. After reading the book and the notes, Bookwyrm went back through the book delighting to find all the “dragons and dragon-like shapes” — what fun!
