Rosemary Travale has given fans an idea of what The Hobbit would have been like if it were a Little Golden Book in this clever book mashup.
Both books are from a similar era, but they were written for separate demographics. Through these clever depictions, it almost feels as though the books are one in the same.
The work on the cover photo is pristine as it has the book appearing to be an actual well-read copy of The Hobbit by Little Golden Book. But if one looks closely, they will discover some clever differences. For instance, in the top left corner there appears an Elven symbol and reads that it was published by A Little Tolkien Book. This refers to the writer of The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien.
The adorable animations are reminiscent of Little Golden Book and add to the playful illusion the book mashup creates.
