Editorial Reviews

'The greatest children's book ever written. Funny, frightening, dense with detail and gloriously vivid, it is the one adventure story every eight-year-old should have.'Amanda Craig, The Times'The English-speaking world is divided into those who have read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings and those who are going to read them.'Sunday Times'A finely written saga of dwarves and elves, fearsome goblins and trolls. an exciting epic of travel and magical adventure, all working up to a devastating climax.'Observer
