After some years looking for it I've finally managed to get a copy to myself. The book is exactly what I expected to be, all the poems and riddles from The Hobbit. Even better, since I didn't know it had some ilustrations made by Tolkien himself. I have to say that the size of the book surprised me, I knew it was going to be thin, but I didn't expect it to be small as well. Anyway, it was a nice surprise since I believe it's cutter this way.

Would have given this five stars, but this book is TINY - 3" x 3.5" - and thus difficult to read the 6-font italic type and enjoy JRRT's own illustrations. Some of the miniscule illustrations are of scenes from The Hobbit and others are sort of random, but appropos to the poems. Still, it's nice to have all the poems (including the Riddles) in one place and in order.
