If you don't read this "prequel" to the Lord of the Rings trilogy you miss a lot of the little details throughout the adventures of Frodo and the fellowship of the ring. Without Bilbo's adventure, Frodo's never would have happened. This unabridged edition is 8" x 10" in size and has forty-eight, full-color, full-page, fantasy-style illustrations including five lavish two-page spreads by artist Michael Hague. The illustrations alone make this a great book for younger readers, but the larger print also helps! Read along and let your imagination run wild as you join Bilbo on the first adventure that led to so many others! Pb, 290 pgs. elise
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.
