''Professor Tolkien revealed in the verses scattered through The Hobbit that he had a talent for songs, riddling rhymes, and a kind of balladry. In The Adventures of Tom Bombadil the talent can be seen to be close to genius.'' - THE LISTENER

In 2014 was published an expanded edition of ''The Adventures of Tom Bombadil and Other Verses from the Red Book'', edited by [[Wayne G. Hammond]] and [[Christina Scull]]. The new edition includes earlier versions of several poems and the related poem ''[[Once upon a Time]]''. It also contains the formerly unpublished "predecessor of ''Perry-the-Winkle'', called ''[[The Bumpus]]'', and the complete, tantalizingly brief fragment of a prose story featuring Tom Bombadil, in the days of 'King Bonhedig'". In addition, the editors provide a new introduction and a commentary on the text.<ref>{{webcite|author=[[Wayne G.
