Im Gespräch stelle ich oft fest, dass von diesem Autoren zwar "Der Herr der Ringe" und der "Hobbit" bekannt sind, die meisten jedoch dieses wunderschöne Kinderbuch nicht kennen. Es ist eine Erzählung über die Abenteuer eines kleinen Hundes, der versehentlich einen Zauberer in den Hintern beißt und zunächst als Spielzeughund und kurz darauf als Echthund in Spielzeughundgröße die haarsträubendsten Abenteuer erlebt. Wenn es stimmt, was ich gelesen habe, hat der Autor es seinerzeit aus aktuellem Anlass erfunden, um einen seiner kleinen Jungen zu trösten, der just seinen Hund verloren hatte. Selbst ich, als längst erwachsene Leserin, lese und höre "Roverandom" seit Jahren immer wieder gerne, es ist eine durch und durch schöne Geschichte, ein kleines Büchlein zum Entspannen, Lachen und sich wieder als Kind fühlen! P.S. Natürlich hat dieses Buch ein Happy End...

What a treat! The unpublished works of favorite authors nearly always disappoint. I pick them up in hopes of experiencing a fresh taste at an old table, only to find kitchen scraps intended for the garbage heap. This was not so with Roverandom. The story is a delight. The word play is delicious, with lots of rhyme, rhythm and rutabagas. Children love words like Persia and Pershore, Psamathos or Roverandom, for that matter, that they can roll around in their mouths like a handful of jelly beans. These remind me of the word play in the Alice books or a marvelous picture book I once read to my nephew about a woman named Euphonia. (I wish I could find it, or at least remember the title.) This is a children's book. However, it does not talk down to children, and it has lots of literary references most nine-year-olds would miss. These can be enjoyed by the older reader with a wink from Tolkien. I am at the awkward age. My children, in High school and collage, are too big or too busy to have children's books read to them. And I do not yet have grandchildren to regale with the wonder of books. When I grow out of this stage, Roverandom will certainly be on my list. Until then it makes splendid reading for a Summer afternoon.

Roverandom is a sweet little book which would probably be best used as a read-aloud introduction to Tolkien for small children. It is neither profound, nor a masterpiece, but it is fun to read. It is the story of a puppy that is turned into a toy dog by a passing wizard, and his adventures as he tries to get back to real-dog-ness. This edition has extensive endnotes, almost to the point of being silly (they explain a reference to Humpty Dumpty!). But the endnotes are otherwise helpful and entertaining if you are curious about the current event allusions in the text. All in all, it is an entertaining book, and worth sharing with a young friend.

To those who would criticize this lovable little book I say, "Understand a work before you judge it." Maybe you just didn't know, but Tolkien wrote this book to be read aloud to small children. Similarly, The Hobbit was actually written to be read with children. Roverandom is NOT Lord of the Rings, but it is a very good, enthralling little story...

This book was a delight for my 10-year-old (and me), even after already having read the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. A clever, enchanting story with lots of fun and unexpected twists. Our thanks to whoever found this "lost" work.

Why a ten for a book that is being panned by Kirkus? Why a ten when I only gave Moby Dick an 8 or so?
One must understand what the book is. It is a very delightful tale about a naughty puppy's adventures. For its intended audience- small children- it is a delight to read. My children find it a very happy book and look forward to hearing it.
I agree that it is light fare, but simply to attack this sweet, sincere little tale for children because it is not "literature" or "profound" seems hardly fair, and at worst mean-spirited. I laughed out loud when I read the first page, and that was with a bad sore throat and not feeling well, either.
In its peer group, it certainly outshines very hungry caterpillars and foxes in socks. Two thumbs up.

I quite enjoyed Roverandum and thought it very enchanting and pleasant.It had lovely descriptions and very pleasing and interesting characters. Some may think it too cute or rather pale beside of The Lord of the Rings but you have to remember that this story was orginally written for a child.It reminded me of the Doctor Dolittle books which have also been called rather whimsy and cute. Anyway Roverandum is a nice little story, pure humor and enchantment.

Not that I disliked it; I just couldn't get into it. The characters seem to be introduced too fast and I didn't feel as if I knew enough about them to care. This book didn't have the pacing or, more importantly, the ambiance of The Hobbit; never mind anything else. If it had those two elements, I would have enjoyed it more. Still, the book had some nice imagery and dialogue and would be a good way to wean younger readers on Tolkien's later books.

This is a tale about a dog, it's adventures and the people who surrounds him. This isn't Tolkien at his best.
