Mr. Bliss

1 rating: 5.0
A book by J.R.R. Tolkien

Mr. Bliss's first outing in his new motor-car, shared with several friends, bears, dogs, and a donkey, though not the Girabbit, proves to be unconventional though not inexpensive.

Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
Genre: Fiction
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

A delightful children's tale. . .

. . .by the Master, JRR Tolkien.

Tolkien fans have long known about the existence of Mr. Bliss, but it remained unpublished for decades. Fortunately, this delightful hand printed and self illustrated volume can easily be obtained.

From the moment when Mr. Bliss decides to buy a motor-car, adventures of the most dramatic (and expensive) sort begin to happen. The observant reader will also note names throughout the book which bear resemblance to names in "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings".

This book demonstrates that Tolkien had many gifts -- and that he exercised his creativity outside the realm of Middle-Earth.

A wonderful experience for children aged 4 to 104. I highly recommend it.
