THE APPETITE OF PIPPIN TOOK
Pippin has something of a large appetite. I find that his appetite shows most in the early chapters of Return Of The King, when Pippin is in Minas Tirith. This page is a collection of quotes showing Pippins extraordinary appetite.
'It cannot be more than nine o'clock,' he thought. 'I could now eat three breakfasts on end.'
'Nine o'clock we'd call it in the Shire,' said Pippin aloud to himself. 'Just the time for a nice breakfast by the open window in spring sunshine. And how I should like breakfast! Do these people ever have it, or is it over? And when to they have dinner, and where?'
'... but I am forgetting my errand, which was first to answer what you would ask. What would you know, Master Peregrin?'
'What is the time?' said Pippin yawning.
Pippin looked ruefully at the small loaf and (he thought) very inadequate pat of butter which was set out for him, beside a cup of thin milk.
'... and I'm not used, Master Beregond, to waiting hungry on others while they eat. It is a sore trial for a Hobbit, that.'
