The Hobbit

The Hobbit, Or, There and Back Again The Hobbit, Or, There and Back Again

"This thing all things devours:
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hards stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats high mountain down."

This year marks the 75th anniversary of J.R.R Tolkien’s the Hobbit, and a much-anticipated film adaptation is in the works.  The film, which promises to be yet another uplifting action-adventure romp from director Peter Jackson, is scheduled to be released on December 14. So now is the perfect time to pick up a copy of the book.

Whether the Hobbit is an old favourite, or something new, this action-packed high-fantasy adventure, has something for everyone. Read the book that started it all!
