The Adventures of Tom Bombadil - J. R. R. Tolkien6.76

This delightful volume of songs, rhymes and poems from The Red Book has many tales to tell.

The Adventures of Tom Bombadil tell us of Tom's encounters with Goldberry, the River-woman's beautiful daughter, with Old Man Willow, who tries to trap Tom inside his trunk, with the Badger-folk, and with the ghostly Barrow-wight who dwells in the ancient mound on the hill-top. In the other verses we meet a princess lovely as an elven-song, the Man in the Moon, Trolls, Dwarves and legendary beasts.
