"In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit."
Bilbo Baggins's quiet, comfortable life is uprooted when the wizard Gandalf arrives on his doorstep accompanied by a group of dwarves. They need a burglar for their adventure, and Bilbo has come highly recommended - the problem is, he's nothing of the sort! After impulsively deciding to join them, Bilbo is whisked away on a journey that will take him over hill and under tree to the treasure hoard of a fearsome dragon...
