'''Roverandom''' is a story written by [[J.R.R. Tolkien]], originally told in 1925. It deals with the adventures of a young dog, Rover.  In the story, an irritable wizard turns Rover into a toy, and Rover goes to the moon and under the sea in order to find the wizard again to turn him back into a dog.  The author wrote Roverandom for his son Michael Tolkien to amuse him upon the loss of his favorite toy &mdash; a little lead dog.  The work is in tone a children's story, but contains many allusions and references in the manner of ''[[Farmer Giles of Ham]]''.

It was submitted for publication in 1936 after the success of ''[[The Hobbit]]'', but was not published for over sixty years &mdash; finally being released in 1998.
