Note di copertina
The Hobbit is the story of Bilbo Baggins, a quiet and contented hobbit whose life is turned upside down when he joins the wizard Gandalf and thirteen dwarves on their quest to reclaim their stolen treasure.

It’s a journey fraught with danger - and in the end it is Bilbo alone who must face the guardian of this treasure, the most-dreaded dragon in all Middle-earth…
J.R.R. Tolkien’s enchanting prelude to The Lord of the Rings is one of the best-loved books of all time. Carefully abridged and beautifully painted, David Wenzel’s graphic novel has become a best-selling classic in its own right.

With more than 30 pages of new artwork and improvements by the artist, this revised edition has been newly rescanned from the original paintings to produce the most authentic version ever published, to delight Hobbit fans old and new.
