Who Said “Not All Who Wander Are Lost”?

Who said “Not all who wander are lost”?

Here’s a hint: One snack to rule them all, one snack to find them, one snack to bring them all and in the darkness bind them… or something like that. 😊

Today is J.R.R. Tolkien Reading Day – a big deal if you’re a superfan of his writing!

LITTLE: Check out this review of The Hobbit, written and delivered by a kid!

MIDDLE: Janet Iwasa studies animation in Hollywood and starts to think that the characters in The Lord of the Rings behave a lot like proteins.

BIGGER: Do you speak Elvish? Learn about the history of constructed languages in J.R.R. Tolkien’s work.

All are expressive, beautiful, and can resonate in our hearts and minds. But some of it is really expensive! Should art be valued at millions of dollars?
