Summary

The Hobbit is a fantasy classic that tells of the story of Bilbo Baggins, a gentle hobbit who is happily leading a quiet and unremarkable life in the Shire. Fate has other plans for Bilbo, however, and he ends up embarking on a dangerous and magical journey that changes the course of his life forever.
When the wizard Gandalf and a band of dwarves unexpectedly require his help to act as a burglar, Bilbo finds himself entering the mountain of Erebor and stealing from the dragon Smaug's treasure-packed lair. The unlikely crew comes up against many dangers along the way, and Bilbo discovers more about himself and how great an impact even the smallest beings can have than he ever thought possible.

The Hobbit Reviews

'The greatest children's book ever written... Funny, frightening, dense with detail and gloriously vivid, it is the one adventure story every eight-year-old should have.'
Amanda Craig, The Times

'The English-speaking world is divided into those who have read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings and those who are going to read them.'
Sunday Times

'A finely written saga of dwarves and elves, fearsome goblins and trolls... an exciting epic of travel and magical adventure, all working up to a devastating climax.'
Observer
