To celebrate The Hobbit's 75th anniversary of publication, a pocket-sized hardback of J.R.R. Tolkien's timeless classic, perfect for little Hobbits everywhere. Bilbo Baggins enjoys a quiet and contented life, with no desire to travel far from the comforts of home; then one day the wizard Gandalf and a band of dwarves arrive unexpectedly and enlist his services - as a burglar - on a dangerous expedition to raid the treasure-hoard of Smaug the dragon. Bilbo's life is never to be the same again. The Hobbit became an instant success when it was first published in 1937, and 75 years later Tolkien's epic tale of elves, dwarves, trolls, goblins, myth, magic and adventure, with its reluctant hero Bilbo Baggins, has lost none of its appeal. Now, for the first time, the classic hardback edition is available in a one-off special pocket-sized edition. Featuring the distinctive cover illustration painted by Tolkien himself, plus his own drawings in the book, this edition will be the perfect gift for little Hobbits everywhere!

A sweet book

door: VictorDLV 1 like ebook
The hobbits live in an idealized world, complacent and somehow devoid of feminine influence. Strange. Slowly, things start moving when Gandalf appears. I remember even when I first read it at age 17 or so it felt too much as a fairy tale to me. As I am no fan of fairy tales...

A Humble and Very Brief Reading Experience

I’ve read and reread The Hobbit a couple of times now and each time it feels more and more like coming home. I was originally written and marketed as a children’s book, but not anymore. You could compare it with the last few volumes in the Harry Potter series: intended as children’s books,...
