2. Drinking like an Ent

When a band of Men of Rohan attack the Orcs who have captured Merry and Pippin, the two hobbits are able to escape into Fangorn Forest, where they meet the Ent leader Treebeard. After accepting them as trustworthy, Treebeard gives Merry and Pippin food to eat and “Ent-draughts” to drink. What striking permanent effect do the Ent-draughts have on the hobbits?

A) They acquire sensitivity to the “whispers of the trees”
B) They become remarkably resistant to hunger and thirst
C) They can now communicate in the Entish language
D) They grow considerably taller

Your answer — C) They can now communicate in the Entish language — was incorrect.

Besides gaining in height, the hobbits’ hair has become noticeably thicker and curlier than before. After his conversation with Merry and Pippin, Treebeard calls a meeting of the Ents — an Entmoot. This discussion is lengthy for the hobbits but hasty by the standards of the Ents, who now recognize that Saruman’s army has been logging indiscriminately for fuel as they prepare for war. The Ents eventually decide to march from Fangorn in an attack on Saruman’s forces in his stronghold of Isengard.
