Synopsis

To celebrate The Hobbit's 75th anniversary of publication, a pocket-sized hardback of J.R.R. Tolkien's timeless classic, perfect for little Hobbits everywhere.





Bilbo Baggins enjoys a quiet and contented life, with no desire to travel far from the comforts of home; then one day the wizard Gandalf and a band of dwarves arrive unexpectedly and enlist his services - as a burglar - on a dangerous expedition to raid the treasure-hoard of Smaug the dragon. Bilbo's life is never to be the same again.





The Hobbit became an instant success when it was first published in 1937, and 75 years later Tolkien's epic tale of elves, dwarves, trolls, goblins, myth, magic and adventure, with its reluctant hero Bilbo Baggins, has lost none of its appeal.





Now, for the first time, the classic hardback edition is available in a one-off special pocket-sized edition. Featuring the distinctive cover illustration painted by Tolkien himself, plus his own drawings in the book, this edition will be the perfect gift for little Hobbits everywhere!

Customer Reviews

Although written as a children's story The Hobbit can equally be enjoyed by adults. It is an adventure/fantasy story of a wizard, some dwarves and a hobbit and the challenges and obstacles they have to overcome in order for the dwarves to reclaim their home. They encounter giant spiders, wood elves who capture them and a dragon who has claimed the mountain where the dwarves used to live. Finally there is a mighty battle where four armed forces are locked in combat with a fifth: orcs (who are elves which have been tortured by dark powers).
