The Hobbit: It's Not Just For Kids (As Hollywood Clearly Knows)
"Bilbo's story is much more than just the development of an unlikely and reluctant hero. His Baggins side, which looks at times like mere parochialism and timidity, doesn't fade and disappear as he adjusts to the world of adventure. Instead, Tolkien maintains the balance between these two aspects of Bilbo's character, showing how they mature into courage and wisdom." The Wall Street Journal 09/21/12
