Product description


‘The Hobbit belongs to a very small class of books which have nothing in common save that each admits us to a world of its own. Its place is with Alice and The Wind in the Willows.’
Times Literary Supplement

‘One of the best loved characters in English fiction… a marvellous fantasy adventure’
Daily Mail

‘Finely written saga of dwarves and elves, fearsome goblins and trolls… an exciting epic of travel, magical adventure, working up to a devastating climax’
The Observer

About the Author

J.R.R.Tolkien (1892-1973) was a distinguished academic, though he is best known for writing The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion, plus other stories and essays. His books have been translated into over 60 languages and have sold many millions of copies worldwide.

Jemima Catlin (born in 1986) grew up in Dorset and developed a passion for drawing at an early age. She graduated from the Arts University College at Bournemouth with a Foundation Degree in Visual Communication and then went on to complete a BA Honours Degree in Illustration in 2010. After leaving university she became a freelance illustrator, working on some personal projects and undertaking several commissions before embarking on the exciting journey of illustrating The Hobbit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect gift
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 25 March 2019
Our daughter enjoyed the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings movies very much. And as she is a voracious reader as well, we wanted to get her an proper copy of the Hobbit that she would be keen to keep with her throughout her life. It is also meant to inspire her to read more books of Tolkien’s work.

We’re not disappointed with our choice.
This is an outstanding hard bound copy of Tolkien’s tale. It contains well over a hundred beautiful colourful illustrations. And while the art doesn’t compare to the Peter Jackson movies it brings the story and characters to life in a refreshing way. The book also includes maps of Wilderwood and Thor's Map. The green cover has gold lettering and the pages come in high quality paper.

All in all, a great and highly recommendable gift.
