The Purple Path  by Dreamflower 32 Review(s)

I like the contrast between the reactions to Olorin between the two dogs--"He's kind" and "He tells wonderful stories." And I so love how you wove the two worlds together here. Lovely visit by our favorite Wizard!

Author Reply: Yes, each little dog has its own personality. Roverandom is more thoughtful, and Moon-Rover is more interested in the moment.

How could Gandalf not be friends with the Man-in-the-Moon? ;-)

Oh, what a delightful little gem of a story! I love the story of Roverandom,and you tied all of the stories together just beautifully. I quite agree that Roverandom and the hobbits would have gotten along together splendidly!

Author Reply: Thank you, Lyana! I just love Roverandom, too, and this is my second story about him. The other one is "Little Dogs Laughed" also here at SoA.

I think the thing that ties the two stories together is JRRT's children. Without them as his sounding board, many of his more delightful tales might not exist.
