An illustrated edition of the enchanting prequel to The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit—the classic fantasy that inspired Peter Jackson’s major motion picture trilogy—in a newly expanded edition.

When Thorin Oakenshield and his band of dwarves embark upon a dangerous quest to reclaim the hoard of gold stolen from them by the evil dragon Smaug, Gandalf the wizard suggests an unlikely accomplice: Bilbo Baggins, an unassuming Hobbit dwelling in peaceful Hobbiton.

Along the way, the company faces trolls, goblins, giant spiders, and worse. But as they journey from the wonders of Rivendell to the terrors of Mirkwood and beyond, Bilbo will find that there is more to him than anyone—himself included—ever dreamed. Unexpected qualities of courage and cunning, and a love of adventure, propel Bilbo toward his great destiny . . . a destiny that waits in the dark caverns beneath the Misty Mountains, where a twisted creature known as Gollum jealously guards a precious magic ring.

This is my favorite book of all time!!!!!! The hobbit is an amazing book about an unexpected journey when a knock on the door suddenly comes to the hobbit home. I wish I could give it 1000 stars.

it was the comic version of the hobit... I think

This would be great for anyone who likes classics and fantasy.I did not like this book because I'm not into fantasy and some words were hard to understand since it was written long ago.

It would be hard to understand if it was in the original text, but this is probably a version that was slightly changed, if not, it is technically an 8th grade level, so maybe that's why...
