Publishers Description
J.R.R. Tolkien's classic prelude to his "Lord of the Rings" trilogy featuring cover art by Caldecott Honor winning children's book illustrator Peter Sis, this edition of The Hobbit has been specially formatted for young readers. Larger print size and wider margins provide reading ease for the youngest Tolkien fans. This quality digest edition also includes interior maps and original interior illustrations by J.R.R. Tolkien. 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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Wonderful Fantasy  Mar 30, 2007
I read the Hobbit back in the winter of 1968 from an original copy that was well worn by many other shipmates reading it before me. I found the story so captivating that I read the entire book stopping only for chow! All these years gone by and I still find myself saying "Precious" quite often.

For anyone that has not read this great fantasy classic, you are missing out on a lifetime of terrific memories of a great story. Get a bound copy, read it then keep it in your library as a keepsake. Your children and their children will love you for it.
Great quality  Mar 26, 2007
Excellent quality book that will last decades if not a centuries. This is the kind of binding and care all books should ship in.
The Hobbit  Mar 23, 2007
The Hobbit by, J.R.R Tolkien was a very good book I thought. Since I really like Fantasy War type books i thought this was a great book. My most favorite part of the whole book was when at the end they were fighting Smaug. Smaug was my favorite because I really like dragons.
The Hobbit  Mar 23, 2007
I think that this book was good. The only thing I didn't like about the book was that it was LONG! Only, the book itself covered up the fact that it was a long read. I hope others will decide to stick with the book and not leave it because of it's length.

Also, I thought that the book was interesting that a "Hobbit" which is small in height, actually saved dwarves, I recommend this book.
A great begining to the most popular fantasy of all time  Mar 23, 2007
Bilbo Baggins is one of the great anti-heroes of modern literature. A somewhat self-centered but likable fellow with aspirations that rarely extends beyond a good pipe or his next meal, thrust without warning nor apology into a quest on par with those he would spin tales of over the course of an evening after dinner. There is no prolonged set-up in The Hobbit. The author starts us off with a brief introduction and immediately proceeds to completely foul up his protagonist's current life and foreseeable future by commandeering him on the afore-mentioned quest. Thus the fun begins.

Along the way Bilbo (a very small man, in both stature and mindset, and one with no desire to change either - thank you very much!) meets trolls and orcs and goblins and a even a huge, very old, and verrrry greedy red dragon who has no taste for thieves, but a taste for hobbits. Bilbo is so far out of his league, and caught up in world events of a world he had rather wished NOT to know of that it is a wonder he stays sane at all through his perilous journey "there and back again."

Everyone should read this book. Tolkien scoots us along (much faster than his drawling The Lord of the Rings pace) in a delightful fantasy filled with magic and wizards and creatures great and small, dangling us precariously sometimes over the edge of a few intersecting plot points (like snapping alligators in a pit) only to not-so-politely dump us off safe and snug at home once again with a few extra coins in our pockets and a lifetime of fresh stories to tell to everyone who was too timid to take the journey with us (and our strange new friends).

This book is a classic because it is easy to read, enchanting, and fun. It started the whole of 'Middle Earth' which in-turn begat the whole of fantasy role playing (an annually multi-billion dollar industry now). This is the Bible of modern fantasy, and one that will make your children laugh and cry and remember the tales contained herein long into their adulthood. I simply cannot recommend a better book to read to your children when they are old enough to understand the concepts this book describes so vividly.
