Each spread also features pull-out scrolls with relevant quotes from the book. These enhance the impact of each three-dimensional image without intruding on the action.

Review:

‘The English-speaking world is divided into those who have read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings and those who are going to read them.’
Sunday Times

This beautifully presented pop-up version of JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit is a delight for readers young and old. Taking some of the main scenes from the classic tale, each is brought to life by 3D pop ups of John Howe's breathtaking artwork. The spiders of Mirkwood quiver on their webs, Smaug the Dragon breathes fire as Bilbo tiptoes off with his treasure and the clash of the five armies bursts from the page. There are hidden secrets of most of the pages and even scrolls that pull out from each page and feature text from that particular scene in the book. This sturdy and well-made pop up book will bring hours of pleasure for generations if looked after well. --Jonathan Weir
