The Hobbit

by J. R. R. Tolkien

Bilbo wants to be left alone in quiet comfort, but the wizard Gandalf has other ideas. Can Bilbo survive orcs and a dragon? Will he return to the peaceful shire?

Barbara's Notes: A classic tale of good and evil, this prelude to The Lord of the Rings treats readers to a rich, imaginative world. Excellent! (Grades 6, 7, 8)
