"This is Bilbo Baggins’s big adventure, and the prequel to Lord of the Rings. Bilbo’s always felt he was different than other hobbits, who typically are creatures content to stay at home and live life the way things have always been. But Bilbo wants adventure and sets off to find it.

"Along with Gandalf the wizard and a band of dwarves, he starts the journey on a mission to find a dragon and the treasure it’s guarding. Unexpectedly, the ultimate highlight of his travels is finding the ring of power. Bilbo’s fascinated by the ring, which he’s won from Gollum in a riddling contest, and soon unwittingly uses it to escape from some giants." -- Michelle Z. from In the Stacks.tv
