Yes, the wizard(Gandalf) likes Bilbo very much. It is by the will of Gandalf that Bilbo comes along with the dwarves for the quest. His concern for Bilbo can be seen when all the dwarves come out from goblin's cave but Bilbo remains behind.

Gandalf continues to visit Bilbo even after the end of dwarves quest.

the description of a hobbit is that they like nothing out of the ordinary yet bilbo goes on a giant adventure as is the story "the hobbit"

Considering that he tries to kill and eat Bilbo in "The Hobbit" and hates Frodo and Sam merely because they are related to Bilbo, I'd say that Gollum doesn't like Bilbo.

Smaug doesn't recognize the scent of Hobbit, although he knows what dwarves and men smell like.

he is a hobbit like frodo and mary also pippin

I believe that Bilbo was first referred to as a burglar in chapter one of The Hobbit, when Bilbo has just shrieked in fright at the things that the dwarves were saying. While Bilbo was recovering from shock in the drawing room, Gloin states, "As soon as I clapped eyes on the little fellow bobbing and puffing on the mat, I had my doubts. He looks more like a grocer than a burglar!"

According to the book he told Bilbo, "I like eggs with my ham, when starting on a journey: fried not poached, and mind you don't break 'em."

The main character is named Bilbo Baggins, a Hobbit from The Shire, who is also in The Lord of the Rings books. There are the dwarves that go with him on his adventure. The leader is Gandalf the Wizard, but he later leaves the group and leaves Thorin, the most important dwarf, in charge. Then there is Balin, who is also mentioned in The Lord of the Rings, and is said to like Bilbo the most. Beorn, a "skin changer," who can take shape of a bear, also plays an important part in helping Bilbo, Gandalf, and the dwarves.

Bilbo, like most hobbits, did not know how to swim. To jump into the water and hold on to a barrel was difficult.

At the beginning of the book, he starts out almost like any other hobbit; carefree, laid-back and unwilling to get into any mischief or adventure, or do anything unusual. By the end of the book, however, he has faced goblins, wild wolves, giant spiders and a Great Dragon, and is more seasoned in his outlook on his life. Although he is still quite happy to be back in his hobbit-hole again.

He saved the dwarves many times, despite the fact that they did not much like him at first.

He is growing to be more confident and being more like a burglar.

Gollim is a hobbit, like Bilbo or Frodo, but changed to near unrecognizeability due to the ring.

Bilbo Baggins is the real leader in The Hobbit because he does a veritety of things to make him hero like. For example: Bilbo saves the dwarves from the spiders; he goes partway down the tunnel to Smaug even though its Thorin's treasure; and he even brightens the mood when everyone is feeling down before the go after Smaug by telling them that they can do it. Bilbo is the most mature one and that's why I think he deserves the real hero and the actual leader of the quest in The Hobbit.

The trolls in the book 'The Hobbit' look clumsy with protruding bellies and long limbs.

J.R.R. Tolkien, the author of the Hobbit, created Bilbo, an interesting character. At one point Bilbo lets out a horrible shriek and begins to shake like jelly because Thorin has said they might never return to his house.

Bilbo is an unlikely choice because he is a hobbit. Hobbits are known for just lying around and doing the same things everyday. They don't like adventures or any type of fun.

He goes back to living like all the other normal hobbits, in his little hobbit hole at Bag End, Hobbiton. Many of the Shire-folk considered him strange (a bit fanatical, maybe). Hardly any of them had been in his hobbit-hole, he had many odd guests come calling on him (dwarves, wizards and the like) and it was even said that the tunnels of his hole were filled with wild treasure (which is of course, untrue). Nevertheless, Bilbo was a perfectly happy, peaceful-living hobbit. NOTE: Bilbo has been presumed deceased, and his possessions are being auctioned off when he returns.

Bilbo changes a lot after his adventure, and is also considerably more well off because of the two chests of silver and gold he brings back. At the beginning of The Fellowship of the Ring, it is mentioned that Bilbo is now seen as un-hobbit-like, and Frodo is also seen as odd. However, the hobbit community is not one that would particularly ostracise any of its members, and as Bilbo is still quite rich, it doesn't seem to be a problem for him. Many hobbits still choose to attend his birthday party, so perhaps he is just seen as the local eccentric. I can add. Bilbo was accepted back but after his adventure with Gandalf he was never the same. Neither were the people's attitudes towards him. They respected him but from that day on saw him as a strange fellow and I believe attanded his parties only because he was a well known Hobbit (and of course ALL hobbits like to eat)!

Traits of Gandalf the Great are wizard, smart, wise, old, brilliant and things like that.

Chapter 8 is where the company is captured like flies by the spiders. All except Bilbo and Thorin, that is. Bilbo plays the part of the naughty little fly that the spiders cannot catch.

It does not give a precise length of time on their way out, but looks like 17 days based on the conversations. They left on Midsummer's Day. On the way back home with Gandalf he spends a week there.

One reason why Bilbo is unhappy is because he doesn't like the look of the lonely mountain whereas the dwarves love mountains. The more likely reason is that Bilbo also has a cold. It is referanced in Bilbo's speech in "A Long Expected Party," LOTR FOTR, book one, chapter one.
