J.R.R. Tolkien's classic prelude to his Lord of the Rings trilogy featuring cover art by Caldecott Honor winning children’s book illustrator Peter Sís, this edition of The Hobbit has been specially formatted for young readers. Larger print size and wider margins provide reading ease for the youngest Tolkien fans. This quality digest edition also includes interior maps and original interior illustrations by J.R.R. Tolkien.
Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely traveling any farther than his pantry or cellar. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard Gandalf and a company of dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an adventure. They have launched a plot to raid the treasure hoard guarded by Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon. Bilbo reluctantly joins their quest, unaware that on his journey to the Lonely Mountain he will encounter both a magic ring and a frightening creature known as Gollum.

            i really liked the movie, so then i read the book. i liked the book, but is was really hard to read. i thought that the author seemed to like to take his time describing a single blade of grass. Other than that, it was a really good book, and i will read it again!:)

              i think that this book was ok, but it was really hard to understand what was going on without having to re-read the entire chapter.

                  This is a great book about a hobbit named Bilbo Baggins, a wizard named Gandalf, and 13 dwarves who go on a adventure to win back there riches from the evil dragon ( Smaug ) who took it from them.

                    My dad told me it was a really good book so I read it. I didn't really like it at first, but then it got really interesting.

                      This is a great book for ages most likely 9+ That is what I think. I am almost done will the hobbit. I think that you should read it with your parents because there are a lot of words that I don't understand. I am in 4th grade and I am advanced spelling (5th grade spelling).
