About the Author:

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born on the 3rd January, 1892 at Bloemfontein in the Orange Free State, but at the age of four he and his brother were taken back to England by their mother. After his father’s death the family moved to Sarehole, on the south-eastern edge of Birmingham. Tolkien spent a happy childhood in the countryside and his sensibility to the rural landscape can clearly be seen in his writing and his pictures.



Alan Lee is the illustrator of the highly-successful centenary edition of ‘The Lord of the Rings’ and diamond edition of ‘The Hobbit’. He studied graphic design and the depiction of Celtic and Norse myths and has illustrated a wide range of books, including ‘Faeries’, ‘Merlin Dreams’ and ‘Castles’, and was conceptual designer for Terry Jones’ film ‘Erik the Viking’. He was awarded the Kate Greenaway Medal for his illustrated edition of ‘Black Ships Before Troy’.
