hobbit giveaway

Chances are you know this story. It has friendship and adventure and dragons and Big Life Lessons, and so much fuel for the imagination. In this giveaway sponsored by The Hobbit: Illustrated Edition by J.R.R. Tolkien, illustrated by Jemima Catlin, we asked you to let your imagination run wild and create your own original work inspired by this classic story.  Check each of the finalists and cast your vote here.

Now, take a closer look at the entry from our second finalist, Karla.


Hobbits love to eat, so here is Bilbo Baggins enjoying either Second Breakfast or Elevensies! (With Hobbits, it can be difficult to guess which meal they might be enjoying!) I added Sebastian, the hedgehog from the Hobbit movie, just for fun! Everything you see is edible, as it’s made of fondant, and it’s all set on top of a yummy red velvet cake. I’m sure Bilbo would approve!
