Celebrating J.R.R. Tolkien and His Fantasy Novel, The Hobbit
by Suzanne Moore, Wilkes County Librarian
What exactly is a hobbit? I heard this question recently and was amazed. I thought everyone knew about hobbits. I always imagined a hobbit was as famous as any cartoon character. When I was a small child, I remember seeing the cartoon version of The Hobbit at the theater. That of course was many years ago, and since then there have been major motion pictures released on the sagas of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, based on books by beloved high-fantasy author J.R.R. Tolkien.
