Welcome to the Abiator's modest The Hobbit plot summaries pages.
Here you will find brief summaries of each chapter of this great book written by 5AB.
These chapter summaries are NOT intended to be detailed. Quite the opposite, in fact. Each chapter summary contains what the Year 5 students of 5AB thought were the MAIN plot elements.

We also drew some cool pictures to go with each of our chapter summaries. A sample of this work is included with each chapter summary.
