The Hobbit Visual Summaries
By Surina Walia
Chapter 1
An Unexpected

The Dwarfs
I am Bilbo Baggins. I am a hobbit and the 14h member of Thorin's company. I was born to Belladonna Took and Bungo Baggins. I enjoy creating maps, eating cakes, and having company.
I was visited
by Gandalf the wizard one morning. Gandalf came back the next day for tea along with 13 dwarfs, none of which I was expecting.
We drank, ate, and sang long into the night.
I discovered that I was chosen by Gandalf to adventure into the unknown and help Thorin and the 12 other dwarfs reclaim their kingdom and gold from Smaug the dragon.
Each dwarf is explained briefly as they enter the Baggins household. These dwarfs are very high-spirited and enjoy an exciting adventure.
Gandalf is a very old and wise wizard. He chose Bilbo to come along with the dwarfs as their 14th companion.
