Summary of the Books

1. The Hobbit

Bilbo Baggins was a Hobbit. A short, quiet folk, they didn't enjoy adventures, and were happy when left to their own breakfasts and second-breakfasts, tea and high-tea and cakes and biscuits. However, what Bilbo Baggins hates might yet come to haunt him. Indeed, it might knock on his very door. A very strange meeting with a wizard famous for whisking people away on adventures leads to thirteen Dwarves finding their way to Bilbo's house, with a job proposition. They are going to the Lonely Mountain, and they need someone small to steal something from a rather eloquent Dragon named Smaug.

2. The Lord of the Rings

Years after his adventure with the Dwarves of Erebor, Bilbo leaves home and entrusts everything to his nephew Frodo. Included in Frodo's inheritance is a tiny ring, one that turns the wearer invisible. However, Gandalf the Wizard warns Frodo to not use the ring, for he suspects that it is no ordinary ring. Indeed, the ring is the One Ring, forged in the fires of Mount Doom by the Enemy himself. unless it is destroyed in the very pits of its making, the Ring will doom Middle-Earth to kneel under the Enemy's Dominion.
