Horrible Book covers of good fantasy books ... this edition of The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien

A Little Tolkien Book. I would buy this and read it to my children every night, whether they wanted it or not...also regardless of the fact that I don't have any children...

Based on the original illustration by Tolkien himself, this wyrm would complete an amazing trio if added to the Tree of Gondor and Durins Door
