Product Description:

Lord of the Rings fans will not want to miss this prequel about the Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins. This book contains the unabridged text, presented in a larger font size for younger readers. By J.R.R. Tolkien. 365 pgs, pb.

Publisher Description:

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.Written for J.R.R. Tolkien's own children, The Hobbit met with instant critical acclaim when it was first published in 1937. Now recognized as a timeless classic, this introduction to the hobbit Bilbo Baggins, the wizard Gandalf, Gollum, and the spectacular world of Middle-earth recounts of the adventures of a reluctant hero, a powerful and dangerous ring, and the cruel dragon Smaug the Magnificent. The text in this 372-page paperback edition is based on that first published in Great Britain by Collins Modern Classics (1998), and includes a note on the text by Douglas A. Anderson (2001). Unforgettable!
Category Description for J.R.R. Tolkien:

 One Ring to rule them all; One Ring to find them; One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them" so begins Tolkien's massive, wonderful tale of the fight against good and evil. I was quite surprised to learn that The Lord of the Rings is technically not a trilogy. It is one novel, made of 6 parts typically printed in 3 volumes for manageability and ease in reading.

Teacher said letters are bigger and have more pictures.

My home educating 4th grade son has been enjoying the Chronicles of Narnia Series and requested The Hobbit. The Audiobook on CD was poorly produced, in too low of a pitch to understand in British dialect. So, I'm hoping my auditory learner will find the larger print easier to read, as this might be a bit advanced for him to read on his own.
