2005 The Hobbit

This is a book report on “The Hobbit ” by J . R . R . Tolkien “The Hobbit ” is the first book by Tolkien that led to “The Lord of the Rings trilogy that was made into very successful films . It is the story of Bilbo Baggins , a hobbit who leaves his home Hobbiton to set out on a great adventure with the wizard Gandalf . Along the way Bilbo has many adventures – he meets trolls , elves , a dragon named Smaug , goblins , and the evil Gollum . Bilbo finds the “ring ” that [banner_entry_middle]

went on to create the other books , and takes it after Gollum loses it . He finally returns home , bringing the ring with him , and the story ends happily
