My mum read The Hobbit to me when I was little and I remember leaping into bed every night, eager for the next installment - it was great. With Peter Jackson, Orlando Bloom and others currently filming The Hobbit down in New Zealand, now would be a great time to buy the book and read it to your child(ren) before they see the movie!
I don't know about you but once I see a film adaptation of a book, I can't help but see the characters in my head they way they are/were on-screen - Harry Potter is now Daniel Radcliffe, Gandalf is now Ian McKellen and Legolas the Elf will always look like Orlando Bloom.
If you know nothing about The Hobbit - the story that came before Lord of the Rings - then I'm not even sure where to begin with an explanation. Just buy it, read it and love it - I don't know anyone who hasn't been swept away into its magical world within the first few pages.
