    My favorite in this book is Smith of Wooten Major, though Farmer Giles of Ham is a fun romp in its own right Smith is in fact probably my favorite of Tolkien s short works Leaf by Niggle was also very enjoyable, and if we take the portions of the Silmarillion as individual pieces I might revise my opinon, but there is just something about Smith which is not only enjoyable, but which speaks to something in the heart of anyone ...

    I was never quite sure where Smith of Wootton Major was going, so I ll stick to Farmer Giles of Ham I ve seen the story of the brave knight vs the evil dragon subvertedoften than I ve seen it played straight, but there s something very modern about the uneasy alliance between Giles and Chrysophylax that shows that there s always room for a new wrinkle Maybe they could make a movie of this one Just don t let Peter Jackson anywhere near it it ll be nine hours long.My father is a cer I was never quite sure where Smith of Wootton Major was going, so I ll stick to Farmer Giles of Ham I ve seen the story of the brave knight vs the evil dragon subvertedoften than I ve seen it played straight, but there s something very modern about the uneasy alliance between Giles and Chrysophylax that shows that there s always room for a new wrinkle Maybe they could make ...
