9780007525539: The Hobbit: Pocket Hardback

The classic bestseller behind this year’s epic second instalment The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, now in a perfectly-sized pocket hardback. This new film tie-in edition features the complete story of Bilbo Baggins’ adventures in Middle-earth, with a striking cover image from Peter Jackson’s film trilogy and drawings and maps by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely travelling further than the pantry of his hobbit-hole in Bag End.

But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard, Gandalf, and a company of thirteen dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an unexpected journey ‘there and back again’. They have a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon…

The prelude to The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit has sold many millions of copies since its publication in 1937, establishing itself as one of the most beloved and influential books of the twentieth century.
