Although Tolkien never expected his stories to so popular, but by sheer accident a called “The Hobbit” he had written for his own children, came to the of the London publishing firm Allen Unwin, who persuaded him to it for publication, and it went on to attract readers as well as children, and popular enough for the publishers to ask to produce a sequel.

The Hobbit is Set in a “Between the Dawn of Færie and the of Men”, and follows the sometimes but at all times exciting quest of hobbit Bilbo Baggins who the Wizard Gandalf and a company of dwarves led by Thorin Okenshield on a journey to the Lonely Mountain, to the kingdom of Erabor and the many which have been by the dragon Smaug. Along the way they many hazards including Trolls, Giant Spiders, Hordes of and Imprisonment by the Elves of Mirkwood as if that wasn’t enough something dodgy is also stirring in the of Dol Gulder, to the South-East of Mirkwood. The reaches its climax during the of Five Armies, where of Dale, The Elves of Mirkwood, The of Erabor, Hordes of Orcs and the all try to reclaim the treasure stolen by

There is also a forthcoming adaptation of The Hobbit, which Peter Jackson’s has decided to into a trilogy.
