Bilbo's Last Song is such a wonderful book for little ones! Everyone knows of the fantastic works by J.R.R. Tolkien, but it's hard to get twitchy little people to sit and listen to a novel! So this magical picture book is a brilliant introduction to Tolkien's work! It is a song and story all in one, we journey to the west alongside Bilbo Baggins while he makes his final journey. He reflects upon his wild adventures traveling the same route the first time round - in The Hobbit! This is so beautifully illustrated by Pauline Baynes who has masterfully captured the 2 journeys on each page, so you can reflect back yourself!
Bilbo's Last Song is a real keepsake that we will treasure for many years to come! We would easily recommend this!
