A perfectly breezy little fantasy adventure that gets you all the Middle-Earth you need. A favorite of mine as a child, it read a lot different to me as an adult... no longer was I charmed by the angry sword-swinging King Under The Mountain, rather I was disturbed by how he is driven mad by immense wealth, his unleashing of a natural disaster (dragon) on innocent civilians, and his refusal to take responsibility for his actions. Very familiar! If you haven't read this since you were young, you owe it to yourself to revisit this classic. ~ Reviewed by Reilly Hadden
