Very charming and clever! I especially liked "Lothlorien"; "Time flies when you're having fun" is an apt way to describe the strange passage of time there. And "Go on the lam. But don't forget Sam" is priceless! I'm still hoping Dreamflower will write a sequel featuring Smaug and Custard the Dragon!

Very nice adaptation to another author's style. I liked the slight catch at the end of most of the little poems. The first one, in particular, was quite good, but I liked the advice about not vanishing when you hit the ground, too. Great little snippets and very effective summary of just about the entire book. Well done.

These were all very cleverly done. As a fan of Ogden Nash, I enjoyed this author's ability to parody his style so accurately. Lovely little poems and a smile inside of each one.

This is doggerel, and I mean that in the best possible way. I particularly loved the summary of "The Council of Elrond", and that long parenthetical note!
