Editorial Reviews

Review

"All those, young or old, who love a finely imagined story, beautifully told, will take The Hobbit to their hearts." Horn Book Guide

"A flawless masterpiece." The Times of London —

From the Back Cover

A great modern classic and the prelude to The Lord of the Rings

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.

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun read, good quality, small book.
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on August 23, 2020
This book is small and pretty good quality. There typing is a little smaller than usual, fine for my daughter but a little too small for our grandma. There are a handful of pictures, they nice, if you look close they are a little pixelated. Overall I really like it, and would recommend it.
