Tales from the Perilous Realm is the definitive collection of J.R.R. Tolkien's acclaimed modern classic fairy tales. In Farmer Giles of Ham, Giles is fat and unheroic, but is called upon to do battle when the dragon Chrysophylax comes to town. The Adventures of Tom Bombadil tells by way of verse of Tom's many adventures with hobbits, princesses, dwarves and trolls. Leaf by Niggle recounts the strange adventures of the painter Niggle who sets out to paint the perfect tree and Smith of Wootton Major journeys to the land of Faery.
