                            In the book The Hobbit there lives a hobbit named Bilbo Baggins who lives in a hole in a quiet neighborhood where he is respected. The hobbits are stout people who are about half the size of humans. Bilbo Baggins is known to be predictable around his neighborhood, which is what makes him respectable by his neighbors, but one day a wizard named Gandalf  comes through his neighborhood one morning while Bilbo is sitting on his porch. Gandalf asks Bilbo if he would like to go on adventure but he refuses. The next day 13 dwarves and Gandalf unexpectedly arrives at his hole he calls home and stays for dinner. They spend the night and leave early in the morning. Bilbo is surprised to see they have left so early and his curiosity gets the best of him as he chases after the group in hope of joining them on their adventure to capture the treasure guarded by the dragon Smaug.

                           Bilbo has never been on an adventure. He learns much about his abilities and bravery as his adventure goes on. On his adventure he finds a sword that suitable to his small size,  which he uses to fight monsters such as trolls and giant spiders. He brings peace between 2 groups of people who have disliked each other for years and helps the dwarves and himself not get eaten by hungry trolls. The Hobbit is a great book about adventure and unlikely friendships.
