The Hobbit Hardback

Illustrated by Jemima Catlin

Hardback

Description

The first new illustrated edition of The Hobbit for more than 15 years contains 150 brand new colour illustrations.

Artist Jemima Catlin's charming and lively interpretation brings Tolkien's beloved characters to life in a way that will entice and entertain a new generation of readers. Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable and quiet life.

His contentment is disturbed one day when the wizard, Gandalf, and the dwarves arrive to take him away on an adventure. Smaug certainly looked fast asleep, when Bilbo peeped once more from the entrance.

He was just about to step out on to the floor when he caught a sudden thin ray of red from under the drooping lid of Smaug's left eye.

Bilbo Baggins finds himself caught up in a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon...
