A children's picture book by J. R. R. Tolkien, published posthumously in book form in 1982. One of Tolkien's least-known short works, it tells the story of Mr. Bliss and his first ride in his new motor-car.

This is a really cute book that Tolkien wrote for his children. It is fun and I loved the pictures he drew for it. ( )

This is a great quirky little book by Tolkien. His illustrations are really quite good and I love his handwritten text. It was a bit of a surprise to see Gaffer Gamgee included here but it was a good one and a nice nod to Tolkien's future masterpiece. This book would be enjoyed by fans and non fans of Tolkien alike. Grateful My wife brought it home from the library for me to read. ( )

I had no idea this book existed until I ran into it at a used book store the other day. I spent a minute going "Tolkien? *The* Tolkien? *That* Tolkien?," but I don't know that I've ever found a better book-related surprise.

'Mr. Bliss' is cute, amusing, and just a great deal of fun for any child or Tolkien fan--reading it ten minutes after I got it was certainly worth being caught with a picture book on a college campus! It's clever and full of imaginative little characters (I adore the girabbit--can I have one?), and details. The style is recognizably Tolkien, and Mr. Bliss is more than a little hobbit-like.

The added dimension of being able to read it in Tolkien's own handwriting is worth a star all on it's own, and though the illustrations are hardly brilliant works of art, they're certainly better than anything *I* could come up with.

Anyways, if you love Tolkien, find this--it's worth the while of children and adults alike! ( )

Mr. Bliss is delightfully amusing, both the book and the title character himself. He gets himself into a series of farcical scrapes involving his new car, three thuggish teddy bears, four obese brothers, some cabbages and some bananas. Mr. Bliss is a frightful coward throughout, not at all the hero you might expect, which I think would make him a rather sympathetic character for younger children. He does stand up for himself in the end, albeit in a somewhat passive/aggressive way. Oh, and watch out for a surprise appearance by Old Gaffer Gamgee!

Tolkien's illustrations are, to be generous, charmingly naïve, but they do fit the story well. He's a good illustrator of landscape and the inanimate, but he was self-confessedly limited in his depiction of people and animals. If the pictures look like they were coloured in with pencils at the kitchen table, that's because they probably were.

Mr. Bliss is an interesting comparison with [b:The Sunday Books|10888098|The Sunday Books|Mervyn Peake|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1309980365s/10888098.jpg|15427086] by [a:Mervyn Peake|22018|Mervyn Peake|http://photo.goodreads.com/authors/1206549489p2/22018.jpg]: both by giants of 20th century literature; both created by fathers for their children; both published posthumously. Peake's illustrations for that book are much better than Tolkien's, but then he was an illustrator by profession.

Conversely, Peake left no text for his pictures, the story being written years later by family friend, [a:Michael Moorcock|16939|Michael Moorcock|http://photo.goodreads.com/authors/1222901251p2/16939.jpg], and I think that Tolkien's is the superior tale. ( )
