The city of Trolberg has some dark secrets to reveal… and our favourite blue-haired adventurer is about to discover them!
Hilda is starting to shirk her responsibilities, seeking days filled with excitement instead of spending time at home… and her mother is getting worried. While trying to stop Hilda from sneaking out into the house spirits’ realm, the pair find themselves flung far away into a mysterious, dark forest – the land of the trolls! Will they be able to work out their differences in time to rescue each other and get back home? And are the trolls all as sinister as they seem?
Book features :
"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
"Pearson has perfected Hilda's Scandinavian-style fantasy world, and his artwork is as captivating as ever."
Booklist, STARRED REVIEW
"Luke Pearson's Hilda books are the most imaginative, most inspiring, and most beautiful all-ages stories published in the past decade. [...] This newest volume [...] is the best yet, suggesting that Hilda may join Tintin and the Moomins as comic-book immortals."
