This book is called, The Hobbit. It is written by J.R.R. Tolkien. He is the same person who wrote The Lord of the Rings. This book is about when Bilbo Baggins of Bag End who has a very peaceful life until he gets called on a journey by Gandalf the wizard. He becomes a companion with 13 draves. One of them is Thorin King of the dwarves. What bilbo has to do is go with the dwarves up to the lonely mountains where the big, nasty dragon Smaug lays guarding all his treasure. That is the one thing they are trying to get; all the treasure. But, the road to there is very dangerous. Some of the things they have to do to get there is pass by meat eating spiders and nasty Gollum and Sneak through goblins and woodland elves and trolls. My Favorite part is all of it because this book is so dang good! You will love it. I recommend this book to people who like an awesome adventures.
