"There and Back Again" was dismissed as a children’s book, about mythical creatures, which had somehow been misfiled as history.

“This,” said the student, “is real history and should be preserved. It tells of the building of the Old City Gates by a… Lord Gimli. Strange name, but I suppose fashions change over the years.”

He turned a few pages and found that the book had illustrations.

“The artist wasn’t very good, though,” he commented. “The Lord Gimli and all the workers are so badly drawn that they all look stunted. And really, no-one could ever have had such beards!”
