    1. Precioso cl sico infantil ilustrado por George Morrow, una pena que no sea m s conocido Tiene muchas cosas t picas vistas mil y una veces, pero es original en otras, como esos comentarios que el autor va haciendo entre par ntesis Sylvia y Joe viven en una isla aislada, donde est la Sociedad para el Amparo de los Ni os Sobrantes S.A.N.S , dirigida por la se ora Watkyns, que con sus ayudantes recoge a los ni os hu rfanos o maltratados de nuestro mundo y se los lleva all , donde olvidan y viven fel [...]


    2. I read this aloud for my little niece Kaitlyn, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.This is a delightful fantasy centered around the adventures of Joe and Sylvia both removed from their abusive neglectful homes by the benevolent Society for the Removal of Superfluous Children and relocated to a magical island and their friend Gorbo, a Snerg, who finds through the course of the novel that he is far less a fool than he and everyone else thinks he is It features classics of the genre an ogre, a witch, a kni [...]


    3. I found this book while browsing through a catalog They had a quote from Tolkein that this was his source book for the Hobbit and that he d read it to his own children Okay, says me, we ll try it.My kids loved this book And my husband loved reading it to them Every night I d hear them laughing away and then they d be talking about it the next day.It has a very Tolkein Narnia type feel to it and was just plain fun The language is a bit difficult but not so much that they couldn t understand it.We [...]


    4. El Maravilloso Pa s de los Snergs es una historia de fantas a y aventuras llena de momentos absurdamente entretenidos que llamar n la atenci n a lectores de todas las edades.Rese a completa EN MI BLOG


    5. A really fun and not well know fairy tale which was loved by J.R.R Tolkien and his children He credits The Marvelous Land of the Snergs for inspiring him to write The Hobbit The story begins on a remote Island where a Miss Watkyns harbors unwanted and neglected children The Island is accessible with the help of Vanderdecken known as the Flying Dutchman and his crew but once there you are unable to leave Here we encounter Snergs who are very short and wide Joe and Sylvia, two of Miss Watkyns harb [...]


    6. If P.G Wodehouse had written a fairy tale for his grandchildren, I imagine it would have been something like this book One pictures the author writing with a whiskey and soda at his elbow and his tongue in his cheek, likely when he was supposed to be doing something else, something responsible This book is both very enjoyable and little known, which is too bad and which is why I wacked up the ginger to say tell you about its, you This is a really fun book for those who love a good old fashioned [...]


    7. 7 10Me lo he pasado muy bien ley ndolo Me apetec a leer algo as , un libro ligero, juvenil y de fantas a Por la forma de narrar y el tipo de historia me ha hecho recordar la saga de Las cr nicas de Narnia, he tenido una sensaci n parecida a cuando los le y eso es genial, porque les tengo mucho cari o.


    8. Another odd book from my children s literature class Snergs themselves not bad Liked the court jester the most of the humans.


    9. Een alleraardigst kinderboek uit 1928, dat als inspiratie diende voor J.R.R Tolkien en J.K Rowling Tolkien spreekt zelfs zijn waardering voor het boek uit op de achterzijde en in het bijzonder voor de Snerg Gorbo Het niveau van hun werk haalt het niet, maar de humoristische opmerkingen van de schrijver tijdens het verhaal maken het zeker de moeite waard om Het Wonderbaarlijke Snergenland te lezen Opmerkelijk er komen Hollandse zeevaarders uit de 17e eeuw voor in het boek


    10. nl het wonderbaarlijke snergenland.Het is een prima boek om voor te lezen Een aanrader voor de bovenbouw van het PO.De humor spreekt mij erg aan, zo ook de fantasie.Het avontuur bestaat uit een reeks kleine avonturen waardoor het verhaal spannend blijft.Ik zie waarom Tolkien ge nspireerd werd Dit is De hobbit voor kinderen.


    11. The Marvellous Land of Snergs is a lost classic which was thought to be the inspiration for Tolkien s The Hobbit One can definitely identify analogous events between the two works More importantly, I felt the same uplifting spirit from both Snergs may be enjoyed as simply a fairy tale but may also be appreciated as a philosophical character building adventure.


    12. A entertaining story in the vein of the Chronicles of Narnia The story follows to children in their adventures int he Land of Snergs kind of a cross between Dwarves and Goblins and beyond The characters are entertaining and some moral lessons are present How ever the story doesn t seem to have a specific direction and bounces from unrelated adventure to unrelated adventure.


    13. A sweet, but witty, story that my three daughters loved Elements from the Snergs certainly inspired Tolkien and Lewis The writing style prefigures Lemony Snicket in some ways Recommended for imaginative lovers of fantasy and fairy tales.


    14. I ll keep this book, but it will be many years before I ever pick it up again Although I don t find it particularly engaging, I do appreciate the overall humor and plentiful silliness If I had a bookshelf titled keep for my children, I would put this on it.


    15. I came to this book through annotations in the Annotated Hobbit One can, indeed, see the similarities between Wyke Smith and early Tolkien A fun little book that is enjoyable for its nostalgiac feel as well as the story itself and the fairy tale sense of play it evokes.


    16. I read this out of interest because it s a source book for Tolkien s The Hobbit I suppose I was meant to find this a charming and silly children s adventure, but for me it was a slogfest Forgive me Tolkien


    17. A delightful fantasy tale I gave it 5 stars not only due to my own enjoyment, but because I could see myself reading this book to my son at bedtime if I had discovered it sooner he is 18 now.






    18. A very merry story about the adventures of two children, it filled me with smiles and I would love to befriend the jester





    19. Ogres, witches, Dutchmen soldiers, and Snergs Lots of adventure here This book was apparently a favorite of the Tolkien family and after reading it with my 9 year old I can see why


    20. This is a very funny book I ve been thinking of the book as a Tolkien favorite and was not expecting the humor, although I should have known better his gaggle of children really enjoyed it.


    21. An excellent children s read A tale that unites all the conventional elements of faiere yet in a unique and delightful way.



    22. I read this in preparation for teaching The Hobbit, as this book is one of Tolkien s influences I found it delightful and charming.
