An illustrated edition of the enchanting prequel to The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit—the classic fantasy that inspired Peter Jackson’s major motion picture trilogy—in a newly expanded edition.

When Thorin Oakenshield and his band of dwarves embark upon a dangerous quest to reclaim the hoard of gold stolen from them by the evil dragon Smaug, Gandalf the wizard suggests an unlikely accomplice: Bilbo Baggins, an unassuming Hobbit dwelling in peaceful Hobbiton.

Along the way, the company faces trolls, goblins, giant spiders, and worse. But as they journey from the wonders of Rivendell to the terrors of Mirkwood and beyond, Bilbo will find that there is more to him than anyone—himself included—ever dreamed. Unexpected qualities of courage and cunning, and a love of adventure, propel Bilbo toward his great destiny . . . a destiny that waits in the dark caverns beneath the Misty Mountains, where a twisted creature known as Gollum jealously guards a precious magic ring.

Title: The Hobbit. Author: J.R.R Tolkien.Genre: Fantasy. I finished this book about 18 months ago and really enjoyed it. The book was very suspenseful but basically you should read this classic anyway. This book is good for 3rd to 5th grade and the sequel is also amazing. This book must be read at least once but I highly recommend reading it more times

A great book About Bilbo baggins quest with Thorin Oakenshield and company to reclaim the dwarf thrown! But what challenges will they face?

Bilbo Baggins is suprised when there is a knock on the door. He is not expecting anyone. He is even more suprised when it turns out to be Gandalf, who has not come for a long time, in fact, since old Took died. He is even more suprised, when he finds himself inviting Gandalf to tea. The next morning, when a bunch of dwarfs come to visit, he finds himself embarking on an adventure with them.

its a slow book in the first like 1 - 25 pages in but it gets very very good in the rest of the book. I think you should read this book!

It’s a great book, its in a mystical world with giant animals magic kind of like Harry Potter .

Bilbo baggins is surprised when thorin and his band of dwarves arrive. The dwarves want to regain their treasures under the mountain and need a 14th companion. If you want a really exiting book for the summer, this is the ONE!
