Written by Greg Hildebrandt, Jr., Greg Hildebrandt's son, this fascinating book tells the story through the eyes of young Gregory when, at ages five, six, and seven he posed for the various "little people" characters known as the Hobbits.

My brother Tim and I waited a long time for the right publisher to print all of our Tolkien artwork in an art book. We couldn't be more pleased with the overall look of the book and the time and care that Watson Guptill gave to this product. We both hope that our fans enjoy owning this book as much as we enjoyed creating it.
Having m son, Gregory, write the text was a wonderful experience. I never really looked at Tolkien through his eyes. When you look through the eyes of a child you see way past what you can ever imagine.
He gave me a new way to see Tolkien and hopefully a new way for all of our fans, new and old, to see our art.
