About the Book

The Hobbit

If you’ve never read this beloved classic, make some tea, toast some bread, and settle in for a read-aloud treat.

“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit.”

From the book’s famous opening line to the very last page, The Hobbit is a story that never disappoints. Hobbits, dwarves, wizards, and one very greedy dragon all appear in this Middle Earth fantasy novel (or more of a fairy tale, if you ask Tolkien).

At the heart of The Hobbit is Bilbo Baggins, a hobbit who lives a comfortable life in the Shire never wishing to leave his cozy, well-situated home. Everything changes when a wizard named Gandalf arrives with a company of dwarves hoping to tempt Bilbo to join them on an adventure. (Spoiler alert: Bilbo goes. 😉)

The Hobbit is the perfect entry to the world of Middle Earth. Once you enter, you’ll want to continue with Bilbo, his nephew Frodo, and a host of other unforgettable characters in The Lord of the Rings stories.

This book is recommended for ages 8 and up, but it’s a great read-aloud for any child who can listen!
