Description

First published in the United States over 50 years ago, J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit has become one of the best-loved books of all time. Now Tolkien's fantasy classic has been adapted into a fully painted graphic novel.

The Hobbit is the story of Bilbo Baggins...a quiet and contented hobbit whose life is turned upside down when he joins the wizard Gandalf and thirteen dwarves on their quest to reclaim the dwarves' stolen treasure. It is a journey fraught with danger—and in the end it is Bilbo alone who must face the guardian of this treasure, the most-dreaded dragon Smaug.

Illustrated in full color throughout, and accompanied by the carefully abridged text of the original novel, this handsome authorized edition will introduce new generations to a magical masterpiece—and be treasured by Hobbit fans of all ages, everywhere.
