The Hobbit

Uploaded by Admin on Jan 22, 1999

Bilbo Baggins was a hobbit. Now, what is a hobbit, you ask? Well, "Hobbits are little people, smaller than" dwarves. They love peace and quiet and good tilled earth." A respectable race, hobbits lived for serenity. Bilbo himself enjoyed sitting outside, smoking his wooden pipe.
