The hobbit

By: J.R.R tolkien


Bilbo starts out at the shire, in his hobbit hole. Gandalf, a great wizard, visited him and offered an adventure (in which he declined) and returned the next day with many dwarves, they left, and he raced to catch up with them for the adventure. He was tested as a burgular and overall succeeded. They finally arrived at the lonely mountain, at which there quest will officially end. There quest was to reclaim the dwarves' gold from smaug, an evil dragon. Bilbo finally met up with the dragon. The dragon was aggravated and he left the mountain and was later killed by bard. Afterwards A war started that was won by the dwarves, elves, eagles, and the citizens of lake town. He returned home and resumed his life.

BIlbo's second test was when he was trapped at gollum's home and had to solve riddles to stay allive.

Bilbo's third test was when he killed many spiders at their layer.

The approach:

Bilbo has to complete the most challenging part in their quest. He had to talk to smaug. At one point they had a full of conversation. It caused Smaug to be aggravated and then Smaug was killed by bard, a resident at lake town.


Bilbo's near death experience was when he was hit in the head with a falling rock and passed out for a while. He had the ring on so no one could find him while he was passed out. He wakes, takes off the ring, and returns to the elves' camp.
