About the Book
In the enchanting prelude to the Lord of the Rings trilogy, hobbit Bilbo Baggins wants to be left alone in quiet comfort. But the wizard Gandalf comes along with a band of homeless dwarves. Soon Bilbo is drawn into their quest, facing evil orcs, savage wolves, giant spiders, and worse dangers. Finally, it is Bilbo --- alone and unaided --- who confronts the terrible dragon Smaug.
