The Hobbit (Paperback)

JRR Tolkien

9 years +

Likeable and unassuming hero Bilbo Baggins is unwittingly caught up in an epic adventure in one of the most imaginative and captivating children's classics ever written.

Although Bilbo sets out on his quest for a dragon's gold rather reluctantly, as he is a cautious hobbit who likes a quiet life, his journey helps him find courage, strength and hidden resources that are sure to inspire readers young and old.

The Hobbit is a fantastic book for confident readers aged 9+, but it's also a great book for parents to read aloud to their child at bedtime, especially with the success of An Unexpected Journey and The Desolation of Smaug - the first two of Peter Jackson's award-winning trilogy of films based on The Hobbit starring Martin Freeman as Bilbo - bringing the story to a new audience.

Different cover page -

Story is great, as all we know. I'm only disappointed because cover page of the edition sent to me is nothing as on the picture advertised. It may seem silly but it does matter for a little girl so unfortunately not what I hoped for
