The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien - Student Page
William, 3rd grade, in Calgary, Alberta says:
Bilbo is always scared. Later, in Lord of the Rings, Frodo thinks Bilbo has been a hero, but really he was a coward in this book. Bilbo usually bumps into good luck, like when he found Sting. I think Smaug played an important role in this book, because without Smaug, there probably wouldn’t be goblins seeking treasure, and the story wouldn’t exist. Gandalf is my favorite, because he’s very smart when the team is in a very tight corner.
