The Hobbit (hardback)
This perfectly portable pocket-sized edition of The Hobbit has been created to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the publication of J.R.R. Tolkien’s timeless classic.Bilbo Baggins enjoys a quiet and contented life, with no desire to travel far from the comforts of home; until 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.This handy pocket-sized edition features the distinctive cover illustration painted by Tolkien himself, plus his own drawings in the book.
