The Hobbit: Or, There and Back Againby J R R Tolkien
I know, I know... The Hobbit is everywhere this year. But I'm totally jumping on the bandwagon! Squeee! This awesome edition contains the original text, but the book size has been shrunk down so you can handily carry it with you, soothing your hyperventilation until the movie comes out (maybe that's just me).
Synopses & Reviews
A great modern classic and the prelude to The Lord of the Rings
This charming pocket-sized edition contains the complete unabridged text and features the original cover illustration, painted by J.R.R. Tolkien himself. The perfect gift for little Hobbits everywhere!
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.
J.R.R. Tolkien's classic prelude to his Lord of the Rings trilogy — now available in a pocket edition hardcover. The Hobbit tells of the grand adventure of Bilbo Baggins as he journeys to the Lonely Mountain with a band of dwarves to reclaim their treasure from the dragon Smaug.
