About the Book

The Hobbit

by J. R. R. Tolkien

Now a major motion picture, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug continues the adventure of Bilbo Baggins.

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.
 
Written for J.R.R. Tolkien's own children, THE HOBBIT has sold many millions of copies worldwide and established itself as a modern classic.
