The Hobbit - A Childrens Book Can't Post

Didn't Tolkien himself write it for his kids?

A fairy tale bedtime story for kids, scary and exciting with a little embellishment at times, but without a lot of the graphic and adult level content.

Enter PJ and PB and this is the "How it really happened" adult version.

Barring a couple timeline changes and variations from canon like Azog, this at least would give a semi legit reason for the changes and perhaps PJ and PB's reasonong is some instances. One could even infer that Bilbo's recollection of events were flawed by the passage of time due to his extreme age as well, but thats a matter for another discussion perhaps...

Does this theory/explanation help anyone swallow at least some of the changes from book to film???

I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.
