We just finished the epic fantasy series The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. These books are classic, and we think that everyone should get the opportunity to read them in their lifetimes.
Frodo Baggins is tasked with a heavy burden, an all-powerful ring. He must travel across Middle-earth to the far reaches of Mordor to destroy it, before Sauron can use it to defeat the good peoples of the fantasy world.
Quick vote: Classic fantasy literature. We're wagging our tails in approval!!! (Well, Sammi's only wagging her stub. Loser.)
