Since this is the second time I've read and enjoyed this story, my review is overdue. It's both cleverly constructed and canonical, though modern. I feel for Jimmy, though.
Author's Response: Poor Jimmy! He hardly deserves to be eaten by a Huorn, just for being a rude teenager. My challenge here was to write a piece with a twist at the end. I'm glad you enjoyed it. G.A.
That was great! I love the way you included Tom in our country!
Author's Response: I wrote this after a visit to the Muir Woods. It's impossible not to think of Ents and Huorns there, and who better to be a U.S. Ranger than Tom Bombadil? G.A.
