Help me it's the dragon!! The Hobbit is about a hobbit by the name of Bilbo Baggins. Suddenly Bilbo finds himself on a quest for treasure with a wizard and thirteen dwarfs. The dwarfs names were Dwalin , Blalin, Kili, Fili, Dori, Nori, Ori ,Oin, Gloin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, and Thorin. On this quest Bilbo finds himself facing dangerous goblins and other horrible things. Finally the dwarfs and bilbo get to the treasure hoard . After Bilbo and the dwarfs kill a dragon they start to collect the gold. After Bilbo and the dwarfs collected the gold they were living nice. Suddenly everybody finds themselves in chain mal and armor for the battle of the five armies. Poor Bilbo!!

I reviewed this book because the illustrator used such bold colors. Also the author used details that none could imagine. I also reviewed this book because it is very different from other books because of the goblins, monsters, and other things that are in it.

I would recommend this book to people who are courageous and who like adventures. I would also recommend this book because it reminds you of yourself when you said you wanted to runaway. I also would recommend this book to Harry Potter fans such as myself.
