Description

Professor J. R. R. Tolkien invented and illustrated this book of Mr. Bliss' adventures for his own children when they were young. The story is reproduced here exactly as he created it—hand-written with lots of detailed and uproarious coloured pictures. 

It is a complete and highly imaginative tale of eccentricity. Mr. Bliss, a man notable for his immensely tall hats and for the girabbit in his garden, takes the whimsical decision to buy a motor car. But his first drive to visit friends quickly becomes a catalogue of disasters. Some of these could be blamed on Mr. Bliss' style of driving, but even he could not anticipate being hi-jacked by three bears. 

What happened next the reader, whether young or old, will want to discover for himself. Thankfully all ended well, and even the yellow motor car with red wheels (to which Mr. Bliss had taken an understandable and great dislike) came in useful at the end.
