This charming deluxe pocket-sized edition contains the complete unabridged text and features a beautiful leatherette cover and gilt-edging. The perfect gift for little Hobbits everywhere!
 
Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely traveling any farther than his pantry or cellar. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard Gandalf and a company of dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an adventure. They have launched a plot to raid the treasure hoard guarded by Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon. Bilbo reluctantly joins their quest, unaware that on his journey to the Lonely Mountain he will encounter both a magic ring and a frightening creature known as Gollum.

Bought for my husband as a Christmas gift, he loves it and it's very beautifully made. Of course the content is the same as the original Hobbit, which we also own.

I found this little gem at a local B&N store when looking for a nicer version than my old trade paperback. I immediately fell in love with it, and I now carry it with me almost everywhere. It's lovely, and I would recommend it to anyone who loves Tolkien's beloved tale.

Great edition for kids experiencing Middle Earth for the first time. It's exquisitely made -- they'll be able to keep it forever.

I'm giving it five stars because it's The Hobbit and of course it's fantastic, but ***PLEASE NOTE: If you buy this book from Barnes & Noble's marketplace rather than the store itself, there is a chance you could be ordering one from a company/library/thrift store that puts a big ol' sale sticker on the spine. Mine came that way and when I tried to take it off, it started peeling the cover off with it. It was stuck to the leathery material and could not be easily removed. I had to peel the sticker off painfully slow, while holding my fingers down on the cover to keep the material from ripping more. The end result was not beautiful, but I managed to keep most of the material on, even though now it's all stretched and flabby and a little sticky at the base of the spine. It is such a cute pocket version of the book, I would HIGHLY recommend. Just be mindful if you buy it from Barnes & Noble's marketplace. Or, if it has a sticker on the spine, just leave it there.
