I read the hobbit and the fellowship of the ring. These books tend to lack females but are extremely interesting. A wizard named Saruman is trying to take over everything because the ring of power does his bidding and Frodo is trying to destroy the ring before Saruman gets it and everything becomes dark.
This book is great and I recommend it to 5th through anything grades. A hobbit named Bilbo has to go on a journey with dwarves to take a mountain from a dragon. This mountain is the dwarves mountain. The dragon is gaurding the gold he stole from the dwarves. If you like fantasy, I totally recommend this book for you.
