From the Publisher
Immerse yourself in Middle-earth with Tolkien's classic
masterpieces behind the films, telling the complete story of Bilbo
Baggins and the Hobbits' epic encounters with Gandalf, Gollum,
dragons and monsters, in the quest to destroy the One Ring.

Lord of the Rings became instant classics. Treasured by
readers young and old, these works of sweeping fantasy, steeped in
unrivalled magic and otherworldliness have sold more than 150

both titles and features cover images from both films.
It offers readers a new opportunity to discover Tolkien's
remarkable world of Middle-earth and to follow the complete story
of Bilbo Baggins and the Hobbits' part in the epic quest for the
Ring - beginning with Bilbo's fateful visit from Gandalf and
culminating in the dramatic climax between Frodo and Gollum atop
