    In the "Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" by Paddy Kempshall it is about a hobbit and 12 dwarves that go on a journey. While on the journey they come in contact with many creatures, people, enemies, and etc.. In this book there is a lot of action and adventure. I love everything about this book.

    I loved reading this book. I'd say to really enjoy reading it, it should take you at least 20-30 minutes to get through. This book has lots of pictures from the films. So, even if it is too advanced for a young reader, they can look at the maps and cool pictures. I would say the reader should be at least at a 6th Grade Reading Level to enjoy it. I think it is more meant for teenagers, young adults and adult readers. It is an introduction into a Hobbit's World. And those he encounters on his ques I loved reading this book.

    The Hobbit is fantastic. I love this book because it is so adventurous and full of fun. I love how Gandalf goes onto the hobbits door step and says "your coming with me". Then the adventure started. It is also really fun to read because the characters are so funny! for an example, Boggle is really funny because he jumps up and down and he is really hyper! I like all the beasts and creatures they face on their journey. Overall this looks like a great book so far!

    A fun, little book for kids to let them know about the world of Hobbits. Some info. came from what the movie has done to the story, and some I think comes from other books by Tolkien. But still enjoyable and fun to see pictures from the movie. Must satisfy myself with these until I can see the movie again. P.S. A rather abrupt ending.

    This is an informational book all about hobbits. This books provides a complete description of the fantasy creatures from Tolkien's books. It provides a description of hobbits' clothing, appearance, homes, and much more. This is a great informational book that could be paired with the classic Tolkien books to help children get a better idea of the lifestyle of hobbits.

    Don't discount this book. OK, the writing is a bit simplistic but it does contain much more information that I expected. It's certainly better than the Movie Storybook. If you wanted something to read before seeing the film then this gives enough information without giving too much (like the storybook does). There is a slight over abundance of exclamation marks, but I was won over by the end so I'll forgive that. It's a nicely produced book too, a little heavy handed with the photoshop in places Don't discount this book.

It's a nicely produced book too, a little heavy handed with the photoshop in places (especially the sketch effect on page 6, which makes Bilbo's face look weird), but a good selection of photos. I was surprised by it being much better than I actually expected it to be.

    This book is a little different from what I expect. Although I doubt the fact that if it actually worth ten dollars considering its contents, however, I thoroughly enjoy the part that is related to the food of hobbits. I originally wanted to give it a three stars, but I loved hobbit and Bilbo, so I decided to add one star to my rating.

    This book is a good way to get information about hobbits, wargs, goblins, trolls, and so on. I liked the story about Thorin getting the name "Oakenshield". I like the real book (The Hobbit) better.
