Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now a major motion picture

A great modern classic and the prelude to THE LORD OF THE RINGS

 
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.

“A glorious account of a magnificent adventure, filled with suspense and seasoned with a quiet humor that is irresistible . . . All those, young or old, who love a fine adventurous tale, beautifully told, will take The Hobbit to their hearts.” - New York Times Book Review

Synopsis:

"In a hole in the ground, there lived a hobbit." So begins one of the most beloved and delightful tales in the English language.

Presented in the standard hardcover edition using the author's original jacket design.

Synopsis:

This edition of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic is illustrated with 48 paintings by noted artist Michael Hague.
