    REVIEW QUOTES
Hilda is coming to Netflix in 2018! A Publishers Weekly Top Illustrated Book, 2012 "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 "[Hilda s world] is a glorious, exciting if also rather menacing place one children will be eager to enter. It s also visually arresting: exuberant and lively and faintly Miyazakian" New York Times Book Review "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. By the end of it, you ll have exactly the same smile as Hilda has." Forbidden Planet For adults ... Pearson s measured storytelling ... and detailed, imaginative artwork make Hilda and the Bird Parade an absolute treat to dive into. It s hard to imagine a better all-ages comic will be published this year. Slate "very enjoyable, it's imaginative and fun for kids and adults too!" Renata Liewska, author of bestselling The Quiet Book "If you know a young comics reader, or a a child that you d like to turn into a comics reader especially if they love fairy-tale-like stories this would be a great place to start them. Hilda isn t a superhero, but she sure saves the day." Erica Friedman for Okazu "Pearson s whimsical artworka cross between Lucky Luke and Miyazakicreates a magical spell of a mysterious world of hidden creatures, and the production of the book make it a treasure in itself. The storycomparable to the Adventures of Polo series by Regis Faller and Copper by Kazu Kibuishinever flags in imagination or wonder" Publishers Weekly, Starred Review "A wonderful tale of love, success, and loss" City Stacks Books & Coffee "I think I loved this one even more than the first." Changing Hands "I can't wait to read more about Hilda." Kim Haddox, Amarillo Public Library "If you haven't heard of Luke Pearson, buddy, you have been hiding under a particularly uninteresting rock this past year." The Comics Bureau "If what you re looking for is great storytelling, humour, adventure and imagination then what are you waiting for? Come on in, the water s fine." The Illustrated Forest "Midnight Giant is sad, but packs probably the most weighty punch of the series as far as real-life lessons for kids. [] It s less a moral about transitioning from childhood to adulthood than it is about a transition from the naivete of early childhood (Santa Claus, anyone?) into the more realistic stages of later childhood. It s also about what matters most possessions or people?" Comics Alliance "Wonderful characters and story. A pure delight to read!" Nicola Mansfield "A graceful, surefooted, graphically beautiful fantasy comic, blending Pearson's Chris Ware/Kevin Huizenga-like formal interests with an easy, assured evocation of a quietly fantastic world. Sly, charming, full of small surprises, and lovingly cartooned, with terrific body language and some startling pages, Hilda is the real deal: a confection with purpose. Subtle moral insights come gift-wrapped in deadpan absurdities; Gulliverian problems of scale (little people, big people, really big people) are cleverly worked out; and the design, production values, and color palette are mesmerizing. In short, a wonderful object and a wonderful story." Charles Hatfield "Pearson's latest comic, the spell-binding contemporary fairytale Hildafolk, feels just as at home in publisher Nobrow Press' visually intelligent catalogue as it does between good old fashioned yarns like Bone and The Adventures of Tintin in my bookcase." Avoid the Future "
"Plain smart and moving. John Stanley's Little Lulu meets Miyazaki." Guillermo Del Toro "
