Bilbo and the Ring, 12 Nov 2006
Bilbo Baggins was just making tea when there came a knock at the door. " It must be Gandalf, " he thought. But no, it is in fact a dwarf. And so the adventure starts. Then a whole gang of dwarves appear with Gandalf to whisk Bilbo away from his home to be a burglar in a dangerous journey to kill the dragon Smaug, and to take its gold and gems for themselves. On the way Bilbo, of course, meets Gollum and finds a certain magical ring which -when you put it on- makes you invisible. The Hobbit is the Prelude to the Lord of the Rings and is a delightful book for all ages. If you like adventures, dragons, gold and a whole lot of songs then you' ll love this book. It is so good you can't not like it...
