Challenge; Famine. Another Bedtime Tale for Little Hobbits

It is very likely that this cautionary tale developed from this story told on his return to the Shire by Pippin.

Once upon a time there lived a hobbit who left his cosy hobbit hole and went off to a great white city full of big people, trying to be a soldier.

But the city ran out of food – only one meal a day and that just some uninspiring cheese and a bit of stale bread.

The hobbit grew so weak his armour weighed him down and when the time came to fight he couldn’t run away from the enemy soldiers, who killed him – dead!

Which goes to show that hobbits that leave their homes always come to no good end!
