There is also a chapter on the hobbit characters from ''[[The Lord of the Rings]]'', including [[Frodo Baggins|Frodo]], [[Samwise Gamgee|Sam]], [[Peregrin Took|Pippin]] and [[Meriadoc Brandybuck|Merry]]. Lidia Postma’s painting of the [[Party Field]] from ''[[The Fellowship of the Ring]]'' is a treasure – it pictures and names 60 of the guests from Adelard Took to Willibald Bolger.
