Tales for Children

This section contains articles on the four books that are most evidently written directly for children. However the author himself believed that these distinctions between "children's books" and "adult works" were often artificially imposed. Many other books by the author can be of interest and enjoyment to younger or older children, and notably Farmer Giles of Ham, and the book of short poems The Adventures of Tom Bombadil, in our Other Tales and Poetry section.
