Written by J.R.R. Tolkien

This story is about Bilbo Baggins who wanted to be left alone. He was happy just where he was. Thorin and 12 other dwarves, who wanted their gold back from a dragon named Smaug encouraged him to join them on their adventure. They wanted him on the adventure because he was sneaky. Along the way Bilbo found a magical ring that makes him invisible. The ring helped him defeat goblins, wolves, wargs, and giant spiders. Then Bilbo...well you'll just have to read the book to find out if Bilbo defeats Smaug and if the dwarves get their gold back. I liked this book because I like adventures like mysteries, finding stuff such as gold, and action adventures. This book has plenty of all types of adventure. Thorin reminds me of my friend Luke because he always argues when there's something wrong. When I read this book it made me think I was actually in there as I read the book. I recommend this book to all ages who like adventure, fairy tale creatures, and fantasy.
