For school I am taking a writing class called Cover Story. My assignment was to write an acrostic or two. Acrostic poems are poems in which a letter from each line is arranged to make a word or phrase. After reading these, can you tell what book I am reading?

Diving through the ranks the fearful foe flew
Ringing swords clash at its armor
"Avenge the fallen" the army cries
Gold and silver scales shimmer in the torch light
Over the ranks the foe flies breathing fire
Nothing is spared 
Silver and golds he hides
Money he hordes
Outside his mountain he pillages
Great and small

    • Yes, I accidentally spelled his name wrong. It is pronounced smog but it is spelled Smaug.
