Format: Paperback
This book serves as a simplified version of the movie's story, geared toward younger readers. Keep in mind that this is based on the movie, which is the first of three covering the book, so you will not get the entirety of the story of The Hobbit. The books features beautiful stills from the movie, with just a paragraph or two per page. Perfect for kids to read - after they see the movie. There are spoilers contained within, so it might ruin some surprises if you plan to watch the movie when it is released.

Great book to add to your Tolkien/Hobbit collection. Beautiful photos of the movie stills and cast. I think it would be a good book for any young person who enjoys Tolkien and this film.

This was a gift for my grandson. He has seen some of the "Lord of the Rings" movies with his Dad, and wanted a Hobbit book that he could read (he is in second grade). Any books that will encourage him to build those reading skills are good!

great photos from the movie. I don't know if I would say that it's good for young kids. The pictures and words are not clearly organized. so for young kids, adults will have to read and guide them along in the right order for the plot. It's not scary though. It may be good for those kids that have seen the movie or are familiar with the plot first. good pricing.

This book has beautiful photos from the movie. The story is condensed, and simplified for a young person. However, I was disappointed by how thin the book was. Although in the description, it did say how many pages the book had, I somehow pictured it more substantial than this for the price.

Great Movie. It leaves you wanting more and has a great intro to the next chapter. You won't be disappointed. It starts a little slow but gets better and better. Don't rush yourself or the story.

Was a bit thinner than I thought it would have been. But the pictures are nice. Not a lot of original hobbit material. But cute intro for the kids into the hobbit. Which is what I was looking for.

This little booklet lets us know just what part of the story will be covered in the first film. The introduction to the various characters will be helpful when I actually see the movie.
