Publisher Comments:

The sequel to the parody of the sequel to the prequel to The Lord of the Rings

When Aaron Sorkinshield and his band of Little People embark on a totally feasible quest to reclaim the hoard of Academy Awards stolen from them by the lonely Puff the Magic Dragon, senile wizard Dumbledalf suggests an unlikely and completely unqualified accomplice: Billy Bagboy, an unassuming wobbit dwelling in terrorist-riddled Wobbottabad.

Along the way, the company faces Internet trolls, moblins, one really big spider that must be at least an inch and a half wide, and worse. But as they journey from the wonders of Livinwell to the terrors of Jerkwood and beyond, Billy will find that there is more to him than anyone—Tolkien included—ever dreamed. Propelled to his destiny by a series of courageous adventures and indented paragraphs, Billy will set out on the greatest YOLO of all time . . . one that leads deep into the dark caverns hiding a mysterious man named Goldstein, who’s just trying to have a nice seder.

Synopsis:

From the authors of the New York Times bestselling parody The Hunger Pains, this fresh take on J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit is a hilarious send-up of Middle-earth, publishing just in time for the major motion picture release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

In The Wobbit, Billy Bagboy (who lives in the hole next to Saddam Hussein) is asked to go on a "YOLO" by the great senile wizard Dumbledalf. Along the way he encounters Internet trolls, the elves' supreme leader L. Ron, a frightening Puff the Magic Dragon, the Philadelphia Eagles' 2004 NFC Conference Championship team, Kourtney Kardashian, and Goldstein, Middle-earth's only Jew.

For everyone who has delighted in Tolkien's fantasy masterwork--or loved to hate it--The Wobbit is a comic extravaganza for the ages.
