Smaug came hurtling in from the North, licking the mountain-sides with flame, beating his great wings with a noise like a roaring wind.

Whisked from his comfortable hobbit-hole by Gandalf the wizard and a band of dwarves. Bilbo Baggins finds himself caught up in a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon…

One of the best-loved children’s books of modern times, The Hobbit is an all-time classic.

‘A finely written saga of dwarves and elves, fearsome goblins and trolls.’ – Observer -

‘A flawless masterpiece’ - The Times -
