Check out "The Adventures of Tom Bombadil" [In reply to] Can't Post

It's a collection of poems by Tolkien, published in 1962. The first two are longish poems that tell us a few things about Bombadil that don't come up in The Lord of the Rings. One poem is called "The Adventures of Tom Bombadil" and the other is "Bombadil Goes A-Boating". You should be able to find this collection in paperback reprint.

It also appears in several anthologies of Tolkien's shorter works, at least one of which might be expected to be in the collection of a good school or public library. One compilation that has it is called The Tolkien Reader (1966), another is Farmer Giles of Ham & The Adventures of Tom Bombadil (1975), a third is Poems and Stories (1994), and most recently we have Tales from the Perilous Realm (1997). Most of these are also available in paperback from online booksellers, and may be on the shelf at your local bookstore. Have fun! Or your sister have fun. Let us know how it goes.
