All of the dwarves took their turn carrying Bilbo, throughout the book.


Bilbo missed how the eagles and Beornings helped to turn the tide against the Wargs and Goblins and towards the eventual victory of the Elves, Men, and Dwarves.


Bilbo kept from being captured by the Wood Elves in Mirkwood by using The Ring to turn himself invisible. He slipped in after the company of Elves that had captured the other members of The Company (namely, the twelve dwarves) as the Elves were escorting the dwarves into the Elven fortress.


Bilbo Baggins is loyal because when the dwarves were captured by the goblins he went back into the horrible, horrible tunnels and look for his friends. He had just made up his mind that it was his duty, and that he must turn back.


The Hobbit named Bilbo was too slow during their adventure to get back their treasure, so all the dwarves carried him in turn, especially Bombur.


he sings a song about attercops aka spiders that maddens the spiders, then slips on his ring and starts throwing rocks at all the spiders one at a time.


The Hobbit is a predecessor to the the well known Lord of the Rings trilogy.The story follows Bilbo Baggins, a rather plump hobbits, as he finds himself unwittingly drawn into an adventure by the wizard, Gandalf. Along with thirteen dwarves, he finds himself bound for Lonely Mountain, where a dragon named Smaug hordes stolen treasure. But the road is wrought with danger.A hobbit of the peaceful land of the Shire, is recruited by a wizard and 13 dwarves to help them retake their mountain Erebor from the clutches of an evil dragon. To journey there they face grave perils as they encounter Goblins and wolves and magic forest, giant spiders and elves. Using magic and quick thinking, with the help of giant eagles and man who can turn into a bear, they manage to complete their quest, only to realize that there are more important things in life.Bilbo Baggins lives a quiet, peaceful life in his comfortable hole at Bag End. Bilbo lives in a hole because he is a hobbit-one of a race of small, plump people about half the size of humans, with furry toes and a great love of good food and drink. Bilbo is quite content at Bag End, near the bustling hobbit village of Hobbiton, but one day his comfort is shattered by the arrival of the old wizard Gandalf, who persuades Bilbo to set out on an adventure with a group of thirteen militant dwarves. The dwarves are embarking on a great quest to reclaim their treasure from the marauding dragon Smaug, and Bilbo is to act as their "burglar." The dwarves are very skeptical about Gandalf's choice for a burglar, and Bilbo is terrified to leave his comfortable life to seek adventure. But Gandalf assures both Bilbo and the dwarves that there is more to the little hobbit than meets the eye. Shortly after the group sets out, three hungry trolls capture all of them except for Gandalf. Gandalf tricks the trolls into remaining outside when the sun comes up, and the sunlight turns the nocturnal trolls to stone. The group finds a great cache of weapons in the trolls' camp. Gandalf and the dwarf lord Thorin take magic swords, and Bilbo takes a small sword of his own. The group rests at the elfish stronghold of Rivendell, where they receive advice from the great elf lord Elrond, then sets out to cross the Misty Mountains. When they find shelter in a cave during a snowstorm, a group of goblins who live in the caverns beneath the mountain take them prisoner. Gandalf leads the dwarves to a passage out of the mountain, but they accidentally leave behind Bilbo. Wandering through the tunnels, Bilbo finds a strange golden ring lying on the ground. He takes the ring and puts it in his pocket. Soon he encounters Gollum, a hissing, whining creature who lives in a pool in the caverns and hunts fish and goblins. Gollum wants to eat Bilbo, and the two have a contest of riddles to determine Bilbo's fate. Bilbo wins by asking the dubious riddle, "What have I got in my pocket?" Gollum wants to eat Bilbo anyway, and he disappears to fetch his magic ring, which turns its wearer invisible. The ring, however, is the same one Bilbo has already found, and Bilbo uses it to escape from Gollum and flee the goblins. He finds a tunnel leading up out of the mountain and discovers that the dwarves and Gandalf have already escaped. Evil wolves known as Wargs pursue them, but Bilbo and his comrades are helped to safety by a group of great eagles and by Beorn, a creature who can change shape from a man into a bear. The company enters the dark forest of Mirkwood, and, making matters worse, Gandalf abandons them to see to some other urgent business. In the forest, the dwarves are caught in the webs of some giant spiders, and Bilbo must rescue them with his sword and magic ring. After slaying his first spider, Bilbo names his sword Sting. Shortly after escaping the spiders, the unlucky dwarves are captured by a group of wood elves who live near the river that runs through Mirkwood. Bilbo uses his ring to help the company escape and slips the dwarves away from the elves by hiding them inside barrels, which he then floats down the river. The dwarves arrive at Lake Town, a human settlement near the Lonely Mountain, under which the great dragon sleeps with Thorin's treasure. After sneaking into the mountain, Bilbo talks to the sly dragon Smaug, who unwittingly reveals that his armorlike scales have a weak spot near his heart. When Bilbo steals a golden cup from the dragon's hoard, Smaug is furious and flies out of the mountain to burn Lake Town in his rage. Bard, a heroic archer, has learned the secret about Smaug's weakness from a thrush, and he fires an arrow into the dragon's heart, killing him. Before Smaug dies, however, he burns Lake Town to the ground. The humans of Lake Town and the elves of Mirkwood march to the Lonely Mountain to seek a share of the treasure as compensation for their losses and aid, but Thorin greedily refuses, and the humans and elves besiege the mountain, trapping the dwarves and the hobbit inside. Bilbo sneaks out to join the humans in an attempt to bring peace. When Thorin learns what Bilbo has done, he is livid, but Gandalf suddenly reappears and saves Bilbo from the dwarf lord's wrath. At this moment, an army of goblins and Wargs marches on the mountain, and the humans, elves, and dwarves are forced to band together to defeat them. The goblins nearly win, but the arrival of Beorn and the eagles helps the good armies win the battle. After the battle, Bilbo and Gandalf return to Hobbiton, where Bilbo continues to live. He is no longer accepted by respectable hobbit society, but he does not care. Bilbo now prefers to talk to elves and wizards, and he is deeply content to be back among the familiar comforts of home after his grand and harrowing adventures.


Of course!! Bilbo "wondered whether he ought not, now he had the magic ring, to go back into the horrible, horrible, tunnels and look for his friends. He had just made up his mind that it was his duty, that he must turn back-and very miserable he felt about it, when he heard voices."


Which cave? If you mean the one that was infested by orcs, then it was fortunate because SPOILER!! SPOILER!! Bilbo found the One Ring, MORE SPOILER!! passed it on to Frodo, MAJOR SPOILER!! STOP READING THIS NOW IF YOU HAVEN'T READ ALL THE BOOKS OR SEEN ALL THE MOVIES!! who in turn destroyed it.


Gandalf stalled them by making them argue with each other until the sun came up. When the sun comes up trolls need to be in a cave or in a hole because they turn to stone when the sun hits them.


Bilbo showed loyalty by going back to the goblin tunnelsto look for the dwarfs and find them and he thought it was his duty. “He wonderedwhether he ought not, now he had a magic ring, to go back into the horrible,Horrible tunnels and look for his friends. He had just made up his mind that it was his duty, and that he must turn back”. Bilbo went through the tunnels which Bilbo was scared of and he thought it was his duty and showed it during the process.


There is this band of Dwarfs who's treasure has been stolen by a dragon called Smaug and Gandalf the wizard drags Bilbo Baggins (a hobbit) into going with them to get the dwarf's treasure back with many adventures along the way.The Hobbit is a predecessor to the the well known Lord of the Rings trilogy.The story follows Bilbo Baggins, a rather plump hobbit, as he finds himself unwittingly drawn into an adventure by the wizard, Gandalf. Along with thirteen dwarves, he finds himself bound for Lonely Mountain, where a dragon named Smaug hordes stolen treasure. But the road is wrought with danger.A hobbit of the peaceful land of the Shire, is recruited by a wizard and 13 dwarves to help them retake their mountain Erebor from the clutches of an evil dragon.

Using magic and quick thinking, with the help of giant eagles and man who can turn into a bear, they manage to complete their quest, only to realize that there are more important things in life.Gandalf tricks Bilbo into hosting a party for Thorin and his band of dwarves, who sing of reclaiming the Lonely Mountain and its vast treasure from the dragon Smaug. When the music ends, Gandalf unveils a map showing a secret door into the Mountain and proposes that the dumbfounded Bilbo serve as the expedition's "burglar". The dwarves ridicule the idea, but Bilbo, indignant, joins despite himself.The group travel into the wild, where Gandalf saves the company from trolls and leads them to Rivendell, where Elrond reveals more secrets from the map. Passing over the Misty Mountains, they are caught by goblins and driven deep underground. Although Gandalf rescues them, Bilbo gets separated from the others as they flee the goblins. Lost in the goblin tunnels, he stumbles across a mysterious ring and then encounters Gollum, who engages him in a game of riddles. As a reward for solving all riddles Gollum will show him the path out of the tunnels, but if Bilbo fails, his life will be forfeit. With the help of the ring, which confers invisibility, Bilbo escapes and rejoins the dwarves, improving his reputation with them. The goblins andWargs give chase but the company are saved by eagles before resting in the house of Beorn.The company enter the black forest of Mirkwood without Gandalf. In Mirkwood, Bilbo first saves the dwarves from giant spiders and then from the dungeons of the Wood-elves. Nearing the Lonely Mountain, the travellers are welcomed by the human inhabitants of Lake-town, who hope the dwarves will fulfil prophecies of Smaug's demise. The expedition travel to the Lonely Mountain and find the secret door; Bilbo scouts the dragon's lair, stealing a great cup and learning of a weakness in Smaug's armour. The enraged dragon, deducing that Lake-town has aided the intruder, sets out to destroy the town. A noble thrush who overheard Bilbo's report of Smaug's vulnerability reports it to Bard, who slays the dragon.When the dwarves take possession of the mountain, Bilbo finds the Arkenstone, an heirloom of Thorin's dynasty, and steals it. The Wood-elves and Lake-men besiege the mountain and request compensation for their aid, reparations for Lake-town's destruction, and settlement of old claims on the treasure. Thorin refuses and, having summoned his kin from the mountains of the North, reinforces his position. Bilbo tries to ransom the Arkenstone to head off a war, but Thorin is intransigent. He banishes Bilbo, and battle seems inevitable.Gandalf reappears to warn all of an approaching army of goblins and Wargs. The dwarves, men, and elves band together, but only with the timely arrival of the eagles and Beorn do they win the climactic Battle of Five Armies. Thorin is fatally wounded and reconciles with Bilbo before he dies. Bilbo accepts only a small portion of his share of the treasure, having no want or need for more, but still returns home a very wealthy hobbit.


Bilbo finds a magical ring. This ring allows you to turn invisible.


By throwing his voice, he confused the trolls and got them fighting amongst themselves. They argue and fight till the sun comes up and they are all turned to stone. Gandalf doesn't actually turn them into stone, but it was the sun's rays, for trolls cannot be out at dawn or else they turn into what they are made of stone.


When Smaug attacked Erebor, The elves came to their aid but the Elven army stopped marching on the hill overlooking Erebor, and watched the carnage unfold. Thorin saw he elf king look at the destruction, and then turn away and go home. The elves basically deserted the Dwarfs, and Thorin holds a grudge on all elves


Bilbo offered to take Bombur's turn keeping watch, and when Bombur was in bed, Bilbo slipped on his ring, thus becoming invisible, and quietly climbed down a rope that he tied.


Intelligence proves to be greater because in all cases strength is against them. Smaug is unassailably strong. The orcs outnumber them at every turn (strength in numbers). Beorn is strong but it takes the intelligence of Gandalf to garner it.


Many problems with many solutions! The problem of Smaug ended with his death. Which in turn solved a bunch of other problems.


Bilbo Baggins is the title character, the Hobbit. Hobbits (also known as Halflings or Perianath), in the world of J.R.R. Tolkien, are a race of peaceful hole-dwelling creatures, bearing the appearance of men, but shorter (ranging from 2 - 4 feet tall), with curly hair, and thick-soled, hairy feet. They live in a region of Middle-Earth called the Shire, which is based on Old England. Hobbits live peaceful lives and have a love for nature and they particularly enjoy food, ale and the smoking of pipe-weed. They have a mistrust of the world beyond the borders of their beloved Shire and they particularly dislike adventures. One day, Bilbo is relaxing with some pipe-weed on the bench outside his cozy hole called Bag-End, when he has a strange meeting with a wizard known as Gandalf. The next day, to Bilbo's shock a company of thirteen Dwarves turn up unannounced at Bag-End led by their king, Thorin. With them is the mysterious wizard Gandalf. After much persuasion and confusion, Bilbo joins the Dwarves on their journey to reclaim their lost Kingdom, the Lonely Mountain (or Erebor), and their stolen treasure from the evil dragon, Smaug. Along the way they encounter trolls that want to eat them, goblins that try to kill them, get held prisoner by the beautiful Elves of the enchanted forest of Mirkwood that have an ancient history of dislike with the Dwarves, and befriend Beorn, a large shapeshifter who takes the form of both man and bear. At one point Bilbo becomes seperated from the company in the Misty Mountains and finds a strange golden ring that takes an instant hold on Bilbo. The ring belongs to Gollum, a bizarre and insane creature who desperately tries to reclaim it from Bilbo in a game of riddles. Eventually Bilbo wins the game and claims the ring, to Gollum's despair. In the sequel, the Lord of the Rings, this ring turns out to be more than just a golden band that turns one invisible. It is the One Ring of Power, the treasure of the dark lord Sauron. Eventually after a giant battle in which Thorin is mortally wounded, the dwarves reclaim their lost kingdom and Bilbo returns to his peaceful life in the Shire with lots of gold, an infamous reputation amongst his fellow Hobbits, and a particularly un-Hobbitish taste for adventure.


On their journey they saw a lot of different types of creatures and races, they met Giant Spiders in the forest of Mirkwood, where they also saw Elves of the Woodland realm. They saw a Giant man that could turn in to different creatures such as bears, he also had a handful of animals that had been trained to help him, they met Goblins, Stone Trolls, Of course Gollum once the owner of the ring of power before Bilbo found it, they also met Wargs which attacked the company which forced them to hide in trees after that they were saved by the Great Eagles which were gods to many people in Middle-Earth and were able to speak in a language which all four races could understand, they met the Men of lake town, of course Smaug the Dragon, and many Dwarves that had been called by Thorin for aid and arrived just in time for the Goblins to be Defeated


From the California "Rules of the Road": No Turn Against A Red Arrow. You may not turn right or left against a red arrow.



The media DIDN'T turn against the war...it's just that pictures didn't lie.


why did Michael Baldwin do on the young and the restless to turn his wife against him.


CHAPTER 5Problem: Bilbo must play a game with Gollum in order to get out of the mountain.Solved it: he wins the riddle game, guesses the ring's power, and makes it out of the mountain safely.Basically, he wakes up, finds a ring in the passageway, meets Gollum and makes a riddle game with Gollum. If Gollum loses, he has to lead Bilbo out. Otherwise, Bilbo gets eaten. Bilbo obviously wins, gets lead out, and finds out the ring's powers (put it on, and you turn invisible).
