5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning pictures, 1 Dec 2013
This review is from: The Hobbit: Illustrated Edition (Hardcover)
So this is going to be a slightly different review from my normal ones.

Most people who want to have already read The Hobbit or even seen the films on the big screen and this book is exactly what you would have read before but what is so different about this edition of the book is the way that it is presented. In a hardback format with a very rich feel to it with the most beautiful drawings by Jemima Catlin.

I decided to read this with my 11-year-old daughter Jessica. I will be honest I have never been drawn to any of J.R.R Tolkien's work. The whole magical/mystical worlds are not normally my thing. However, there was something about the presentation of this book that made me want to read it. The pictures totally captured the story and gave Jess and I something to discuss as we took turns reading the chapters.

Jess loved the book and even tried to re-create some of the pictures herself as she loved them so much. I can't help thinking that this is what you would call a coffee table book. Something that you would leave on display as it is so beautiful, with the most stunning illustrations and people would pick up and admire. It really is a perfect Christmas gift or present for someone who will certainly be thrilled to receive it.
