"Catcher in the Rye" When I first read this book, I really didn't like it. But when I went back over it in my mind I realised how utterly brilliant it is.

"In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort."   - J.R.R. Tolkien - The Hobbit  I read this first in the 2nd grade. I love Tolkein.

Why Tolkien was a fine modern artist

The Hobbit is the story of Bilbo Baggins, a hobbit from the shire who goes on the adventure of a lifetime. The Hobbit is less complicated and easier to read than the Lord of The Rings but still full of adventure, excitement and exploration.

JUST reread this amazing book. Meaning I finished it about 3 hours ago.... One of the most heart-wrenching and thought-provoking stories.

This is so creative they have used the text to look like tree branches its a really creative and smart idea and defiantly would bring in an audience. I also really love the style of this illustrations and the colours are so bright and vibrant.

More detailed style of illustration using pen? Use colours relating to danger or suspense?
