Overview

"Hilda is the little girl. And this is her folk tale. And pretty much everything you need to know about how good this is, is there on that absolutely gorgeously delightful cover above. By the end of it, you'll have exactly the same smile as Hilda has."—Forbidden Planet

Hilda sits in her tent listening to the thunder passing overhead when she hears a bell. As she hurtles towards the vanishing tinkling sound, Hilda unwittingly embarks on an adventure into strange worlds ruled by magical forces. Luke Pearson tells this exciting tale for kids and adults alike.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Hilda is coming to Netflix in 2018!

"Plain smart and moving. John Stanley's Little Lulu meets Miyazaki."
—Guillermo Del Toro

Pearson’s utter lack of pretension keeps Hilda feeling fresh, while his reading of folktales and Tove Jansson’s Moomin series embeds Hilda in the long history of children’s stories. […] Hilda’s dilemmas, while fantastic, also feel real […] Pearson has found a lovely new way to dramatize childhood demons, while also making you long for your own cruise down the fjords.
—The New Yorker

"A master of mood-enhancing colors, Pearson nudges the story from vivid to haunting at a pen-stroke, ending with a book that is vibrant delight with just an edge of spine-tingling danger. A really great story for ages six-and-up, and anyone else who thinks comics are best read with flashlights under the covers."
