J. R. R. Tolkien (Little People, BIG DREAMS #79) (Hardcover)
Little John experienced lots of change in his life from a young age. Moving from South Africa to a big city in England, he longed for the nature he grew up around. After the death of both of his parents, John found comfort in telling stories and building imaginary worlds with his friends.
