Review by Publisher's Weekly Review

J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, which first appeared on the literary scene in 1937, receives elegant and appropriately fantastical treatment with Peter Sis's artwork on the jacket just in time for the December release of The Fellowship of the Ring. The paperback features sturdy foldover flaps on the cover. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
