Summary
For generations of entranced readers, and now a new generation of filmgoers, Tolkien is synonymous with his most famous creation - the hobbit. Written for all those who are interested in Tolkien's work, and of course for all those interested in hobbits, this is the first book to focus on the changes made to the hobbits' characters not only by Tolkien but also by other artists - actors, writers, directors, lyricists and choreographers
