"The illustrations are completely different."
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The book I received does not match the images this site provides. My cover is black with a red dot, is published by Harper Collins Publishers not Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and the maps are the only illustrations that match, non of Alan Lee’s work is in it.

Description

A new paperback edition of JRR Tolkien's fantasy masterpiece, The Hobbit The Hobbit is a tale of high adventure, undertaken by a company of dwarves in search of dragon-guarded gold. A reluctant partner in this perilous quest is Bilbo Baggins, a comfort-loving unambitious hobbit, who surprises even himself by his resourcefulness and skill as a burglar. Encounters with trolls, goblins, dwarves, elves and giant spiders, conversations with the dragon, Smaug, and a rather unwilling presence at the Battle of Five Armies are just some of the adventures that befall Bilbo. Bilbo Baggins has taken his place among the ranks of the immortals of children's fiction. Written by Professor Tolkien for his own children, The Hobbit met with instant critical acclaim when published.
