Hilda And The Midnight Giant
After the phenomenal success of Hildafolk, Hilda has been granted her own series, beginning with Hilda and the Midnight Giant.
In the first volume by talented Luke Pearson Hilda finds her world turned upside down as she faces the prospect of leaving her snow-capped birthplace for the hum of the megalopolis. The local ‘hidden people’, who have made it their mission to bombard Hilda’s family with tiny letters forcing them to leave, don’t help. As Hilda seeks ways to stall her mother’s decision she rushes to befriend the very source of her malady. What a way to start!
“Hilda is a little girl who has an uncanny ability to befriend even the most peculiar of house guests, but when an army of ‘Hidden Elves’ bombard her living room in the dead of the night with stones and forced wviction notices, she has to think twice before making these new creatures’ acquaintances.
Under duress and in fear of losing her beloved home, she sets out on an adventure to secure her birth right and to find out who, if he even exists, is this mysterious Midnight Giant?”
Hilda and The Midnight Giant really is a gem. 40 pages of full packed colour. The quality of Luke Pearson’s illustrations and imgaination is up there with the best. I shall be keeping my eyes on him and the wonderful, magical adventures of Hilda in the future. 5 out of 5.
