A great modern claasic and the prelude to The Lord of the Rings.
Experience The Hobbit in this perfectly sized hardback edition.
Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely travelling any further than his pantry or cellar. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard, Gandalf, and a company of dwarves arrive on an adventure. They have a plot to raid the treasure hoard guarded by Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon. Bilbo is most reluctant to take part in this quest, but he surprises even himself by his resourcefulness and skill as a burglar.
This edition, published to mark the 75th anniversary of first publication, includes a foreword by Christopher Tolkien.
