Hobbit: Summary


This is a story about a Hobbit whose name is Bilbo Baggins. One
morning thirteen Dwarfs and Gandalf The Wandering Wizard appeared
at Bilbo's door. The Dwarfs wanted Bilbo to help them conquer a
dragon named Smaug, who had taken over their land.

When Bilbo woke up the next morning, they started out on a journey
towards Lonely Mountain. Then, a thunder storm came upon them and
they found a dry cave and slept there for the night. Bilbo was
awakened by a scraping sound, then he saw the stone wall open.
The group was captured by Goblins.

They found themselves in a large cavern in the mountain. The
Goblin scowled at them. Then Thorin stepped forward and explained
to him that they did not mean to trespass. Gandolf appeared at
the door and freed the group from the goblins. The group ran
ahead and Bilbo was lost behind them.

Bilbo found an underwater lake and a ring on an island in the
lake. He found out that the ring made him invisible. In the lake
also lived a creature named Gollum. Gollum was a creature that
ate other people. Gollum approached Bilbo and Bilbo told him he
desired to find a way out. They then played a riddle game and if
Bilbo won, he lived and if he lost, he would die. Bilbo won the
riddle game but Gollum still wanted to eat him, But then Bilbo
accidentally slipped the ring on his finger and became invisible,
so he escaped.

He met with the group again and walked with them for a few days.
Gandolf left the group a few days later. The ring Bilbo had
helped the group through two more circumstances along the journey.

The group made it to the base of Lonely Mountain. They then
climbed the mountain and found a secret entrance to the inside,
where Smaug was. Thorin and the Dwarfs stayed outside. Bilbo
went down a hallway and came upon Smaug. He then slipped on the
ring he had found earlier and became invisible. Smaug awoke when
Bilbo tried to steal a gold cup.

Smaug knew that the Hobbit was there because he heard him. Smaug
told Bilbo that nothing could pierce his scales. But when Bilbo
searched Smaug's body he found a scale was missing in one spot.
So Bilbo grabbed the cup and ran out of the mountain.

Smaug followed Bilbo and started burning the city. Meanwhile,
Bilbo had told a bird to find a hunter named Bard the Hunter and
to tell him that Smaug had a weak spot below the neck. Bard the
Hunter came and saw the spot and plunged an arrow into Smaug,
Smaug fell down and died.
