4 Reviews

While Bilbo embarks on his last journey to the West, his mind is cast back to his first big adventure, THE HOBBIT.

J.R.R TOLKIEN's beautiful poem is bought to life through Pauline Bayne's stunning illustrations. It's the perfect introduction to the epic fantasy series of THE HOBBIT and THE LORD OF THE RINGS for younger readers, and a real treat for all Tolkien fans.

Baynes' illustrations have been fully restored in this fantastic new edition, which is published to coincide with the film release of THE HOBBIT in autumn 2012.

This book is hardly anything. It's a short poem with illustrations. If you've finished the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit, you should certainly read it, but I'd suggest reading it before you decide if you want to own it. It will only take about 2-3 minutes to finish. Read full review

This one is more about the artwork and how Bilbo recalls his adventures before leaving for Grey Havens with the elves at the end of Lord of the Rings. Read full review
