The Hobbit

By J. R. R. Tolkien

“To the end of his days Bilbo could never remember how he found himself outside, without a hat, a walking-stick or any money… leaving his second breakfast half-finished and quite unwashed up, pushing his keys into Gandalf’s hands, and running as fast as his feet could carry him.”

– J. R. R. Tolkien

Bilbo is a hobbit who, enjoying his cozy creature comforts – and not wanting to disrupt the peace of his small and nosy community – lives a mundane but happy hobbit life.

His ordinary routine is disrupted when wizard Gandalf and 13 rowdy dwarves invite themselves for tea and, even worse, speak of adventures, treasures, and dragons!

To Bilbo’s dismay, he’s convinced to leave behind his second breakfast and embark on a journey, with no idea just how epic and dangerous his quest will be.

This story is about an unlikely hero’s quest and all the incredible creatures, both good and evil, that he encounters along the way.
