    If you can't tell by my name, Smith of Wooton Major. It lets me imagine that I have a chance to go to Faery/Middle Earth.

    It would have to be Farmer Giles of Ham.
    O' Giles was tough , witty , could think on his feet , handy with his Blunderbuss ... Plus his dog Garm was pretty squared away too.
    The tale itself is a fun lighthearted read.

    Leaf by Niggle is a great allegory (although Tolkien claimed to hate allegory) for his own creation - Arda. It's about an artist who begins painting a leaf only to find he becomes engrossed with its setting. He keeps adding new pictures to its sides and ends up with a whole forest.
