The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
Originally published in 1937
In the hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet dry, bare sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and than means comfort.
Written for J.R.R. Tolkien's own children, The Hobbit met with instant critical accalim when it was first published in 1937. Now recognized as a timeless classic, this introduction to the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, the wizard Gandalf, Gollum and the spectacular world of Middle-earth recounts of the adventures of a reluctant here, a powerful and dangerous ring, and the cruel dragon Smaug the Magnificent. Unforgettable!
