    Product description

    Synopsis
    Bilbo Baggins was a hobbit who wanted to be left alone in quiet comfort. But the wizard Gandalf came along with a band of homeless dwarves. Soon Bilbo was drawn into their quest, facing evil orcs, savage wolves, giant spiders, and worse unknown dangers. Finally, it was Bilbo'alone and unaided'who had to confront the great dragon Smaug, the terror of an entire countryside . . .

    From J.R.R. Tolkien's own description for the original edition: "If you care for journeys there and back, out of the comfortable Western world, over the edge of the Wild, and home again, and can take an interest in a humble hero (blessed with a little wisdom and a little courage and considerable good luck), here is a record of such a journey and such a traveler. . . . In following the path of this humble adventurer, you will learn by the way (as he did)--if you do not already know all about these things--much about trolls, goblins, dwarves, and elves, and get some glimpses into the history and politics of a neglected but important period." Featuring stunning new cover art by Caldecott Honor winning children's book illustrator Peter Sis, this edition of The Hobbit has been specially formatted for young readers. Larger print size and wider margins provide reading ease for the youngest Tolkien fans. This quality digest edition also includes interior maps and original interior illustrations by J.R.R. Tolkien.

    J.R.R. Tolkien's classic prelude to his Lord of the Ringstrilogy featuring cover art by Caldecott Honor winning children's book illustrator Peter Sís, this edition of The Hobbit has been specially formatted for young readers. Larger print size and wider margins provide reading ease for the youngest Tolkien fans. This quality digest edition also includes interior maps and original interior illustrations by J.R.R. Tolkien. Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely traveling any farther than his pantry or cellar. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard Gandalf and a company of dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an adventure. They have launched a plot to raid the treasure hoard guarded by Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon. Bilbo reluctantly joins their quest, unaware that on his journey to the Lonely Mountain he will encounter both a magic ring and a frightening creature known as Gollum.

    The Hobbit hardcover for younger readers"

    Created: 30/09/09
    This is a slightly larger edition of the hobbit tale. I bought it because It is hardcover and easier to hold, read and use. It is also cheaper then the other hardcover versions.The text itself is identical but slightly larger. There were not any more illustrations in it then any of the other editions of the hobbit books, and in fact i think it has the minimum amount I have seen out of all of them, not counting the front and back cover 'abstract drawings'. Still a great tale of course, in my top 10 greatest books of all time.
