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.

[edit] 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.
