i was thinking about buying it when a saw it a few days back.
Should i take my wallet and run to the book store?
in short, i would strongly urge you to purchase it asap
However I would say it's worth a read if you have some time on your hands or are interested, check it out of the library.
In the story, an irritable wizard turns Rover into a toy, and Rover goes to the moon and under the sea in order to find the wizard again to turn him back into normal-size .
Was he the dog of the Baron von M’nchhausen?
Anyways, I've just finished Roverandom. I still like The Hobbit better, but I haven't read any other children's books by Tolkien, so I won't jump to the conclusion that that was his best one yet.
But still, Roverandom is pretty darn good. I didn't really catch all those references to contemporary politics or wahtever, but I thought the word-play cute and Rover's a very lovable dog (though I thought the Moon-dog was fiestier and more of a doggy character than Roverandom)
