But in the end it is Bilbo alone who must face the most dreaded dragon in all Middle-Earth, and a destiny that waits in the dark caverns beneath the Misty Mountains, where a twisted creature known as Gollum jealously gurads a precious magic ring"--Page 4 of cover.

Read for the, at least, tenth time. MC's book -- had forgotten that I let her color the Tolkien drawings -- sent it to her even though Mike has the same edition.

Very enjoyable read. It's refreshing to see independent art *not* connected to the movies.

Well-written and nicely-illustrated graphic version of The Hobbit. This edition sticks close to the original novel. The maps are a nice touch.

A very good and faithful adaptation of a classic novel. I truly enjoyed reading this, or rather experiencing it, as there is so much more to it than just reading. The artwork is beautifully done, and fits so well with the story, and the lettering adds so much. Truly worth checking out.
