The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien

Review by: Josh B. Alaska, Grade 5

The Hobbit is an adventurous novel written by J.R.R Tolkien. This book is about an ordinary hobbit who goes from eating a plump, juicy steak to fighting a goblin in a matter of days. Bilbo the hobbit, 13 dwarves, and the wizard, Gandalf, have to travel to Mount Spur through the wilderness to defeat the evil dragon Smaug and reclaim the treasure. On their journey, they encounter many enemies, such as oversized spiders, goblins, and rock giants. However, on their adventure they lose dwarves to their many misfortunes. I like this book because it has action, adventure, and I can connect to some of the problems and settings, because I play outside and have encountered moose, bear, and thorns.

  1. Witch & Wizard Book 1

    James Patterson

    Witch & Wizard is about a dystopian world where if you are born with strange powers you are labeled as ‘Dangerous’ and must be contained from society in a very dangerous prison where to survive you have to be fast and follow rules. The story follows siblings named Whit and Whisty Allgood as they are put into containment with others like them. They soon escape and plan to break everyone else out with non captured different people. I have only gotten my hands on the first book so I don’t know what happens after the end of book 1 but I hope to find it when school starts. I like this book because it has fantasy and magic I have only seen on tv and comes i a series so I always have a book to read.
