This month’s recommended read is ‘The Hobbit’, by J.R.R. Tolkien. The book has been recommended by one of our students, Carter Johnson, who is reading the book at the age of 7! Carter is an avid reader and says ‘the book isn’t what I expected it to be like… It’s even better!’. He chose the books because it is adventurous so if you like adventure stories, then this is the one for you!
Here is a blurb for our recommended read:
Bilbo, a Hobbit (who doesn’t like adventures), is visited by a wizard called Gandalf and thirteen dwarves who seek a fourteenth member (to avoid the unlucky number) for their journey to steal the treasure from the dragon Smaug. Though reluctant at first, Bilbo is convinced in part by the trickery of Gandalf to join the unexpected party. He is taken, literally from his comfort zone, off to discover things he knew of only from old tales.
