The Hobbit is a classic tale of adventure and discovering one's self, set in the fabulous multi-dimensional world of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. Bilbo is our long-suffering protagonist that just can't seem to help falling in with a ragtag group of dwarves searching for their lost homeland. A complex set of characters brings the world to life in a adventure worthy of any age.
"In a hole in the ground, there lived a hobbit." So begins one of the most beloved and delightful tales in the English language. Set in the imaginary world of Middle-earth, at once a classic myth and a modern fairy tale, "The Hobbit" is one of literature's most enduring and well-loved novels. Illustrations.
