J.R.R. Tolkien: A Beginner's Guide is an elementary school-level introduction to the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, written by Andrew Blake.

From the publisher

Examining the novels and other writings, Andrew Blake shows how J.R.R. Tolkien's mastery of language, his establishment of a fully-fledged alternative mythology, and his brave way of looking at difficult questions have helped to inaugurate a new way of writing which re-established "fantasy" as a late 20th century genre.
