Hilda is sitting in her tent at night listening to the rumble of the storm passing overhead when she hears a bell. She had left that very same bell tied to a rock (that she very well knew was anything but that) days before in the hope that she might catch a glimpse of that most elusive of woodland creatures: the troll. As she hurtles towards the vanishing sound of tinkling bells, Hilda unwittingly embarks on an adventure into strange worlds ruled by magical forces.
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.""Comics Alliance""
