This story is so fun! I am listening to it, which is a real treat since I am the one who does all the reading aloud at home.
One moment I appreciate is that after Bilbo vanishes during his party, the people spin tales of that particular moment, creating of Bilbo something that reminds me of a leprechaun. It gives me the giggles.
I also love the character of Gandalf. There’s something about an old man, full of concern and wisdom for his little friends, who is willing to undertake tasks that are far too great for anyone, in order that he might save his little friends. Reminds me of Dumbledore from Harry Potter. And I’m sure there are other book characters who have a role like this, but none come to mind at the moment.
