Confusticate and bebother these dwarves!" he said aloud. Why don't they come and lend a hand?" Lo and behold! there stood Balin and Dwalin at the door of the kitchen, and Fili and Kili behind them, and before he could say knife they had whisked the trays and a couple of small tables into the parlour and set out everything afresh

Lo scopo è la riconquista di un leggendario tesoro, custodito da Smaug, un grande e temibile drago. Bilbo, riluttante, si imbarca nell’impresa, inconsapevole che lungo il cammino s’imbatterà in una strana creatura di nome Gollum. Large book collections. Protagonisti della vicenda sono, per l’appunto, gli hobbit, piccoli esseri "dolci come il miele e resistenti come le radici di alberi secolari", che vivono con semplicità e saggezza in un idillico scenario di campagna: la Contea.

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort. It had a perfectly round door like a porthole, painted green, with a shiny yellow brass knob in the exact middle. Lo and behold! there stood Balin and Dwalin at the door of the kitchen, and Fili and Kili behind them, and before he could say knife they had whisked the trays and a couple of small tables into the parlour and set out everything afresh. Gandalf sat at the head of the party with the thirteen, dwarves all round: and Bilbo sat on a stool at the fireside, nibbling at a biscuit (his appetite was quite taken away), and trying to look as if this was all perfectly ordinary and. not in the least an adventure.
