The Adventures of Tom Bombadil

The Adventures of Tom Bombadil is a collection of poetry by J.R.R. Tolkien, published in 1962. The book contains 16 poems, only three of which deal with Tom Bombadil, a character who is most famous for his encounter with Frodo Baggins in The Fellowship of the Ring, the first volume in Tolkien's best-selling Lord of the Rings trilogy. The rest of the poems are an assortment of bestiary verse and fairy tale rhyme.

The book was originally illustrated by Pauline Baynes.
