Review by Booklist Review
Gr. 4-8. Though possessing an ancient, menacing evil, Smaug is, nonetheless, a dragon with great personality. His encounter with Bilbo, the Hobbit, is one of the best dragon stories ever. Those wanting an illustrated edition should see Michael Hague's 1984 edition, also published by Houghton.
