Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Hilda and the Troll tells the story of an artistic Scandinavian girl as she explores the unknown wilderness around her house, encountering a blue fox with antlers, the msyterious 'wood man,' and (you guessed it!) a troll. The art is as whimsical as the protagonist, and the bright colors enhance this comic book's magical-realistic effect." -The Horn Book

"Take a look at the little blue-haired girl on the cover of this book. That is the face of a determined adventurer, a young girl with an inquisitive nature and the heart of an explorer" -5 Minutes For Books.

"Pearson is a rising star." -New Yorker
