"Hilda can never sit still for long without setting off on another adventure. She can't resist exploring her enchanting world--a place where trolls walk, crows speak, and mountains move. The magic and folklore of the wild, windswept North come alive in this book about an adventurous little girl and her habit of befriending anything, no matter how curious it might seem. While on an expedition to illustrate the magical creatures of the mountains around her home, Hilda spots a mountain troll. As the blue-haired explorer sits and sketches, she slowly starts to nod off. By the time she wakes up, the troll has totally disappeared and, even worse, Hilda is lost in a snowstorm. On her way home, Hilda befriends a lonely wooden man, and narrowly avoids getting squashed by a lost giant. This brand new paperback edition of Hilda and the Troll offers a fresh chance to read the very first outing in Luke Pearson's ever-popular series of magical Hilda adventures." -- Amazon.com

This fantastical adventure of an artist, reader, and explorer is such a wild trip. I want to hop right into the pages and spend more time with these characters. Super cute and has a good moral - don't make snap judgments.

Super cute book. It is so short though that it feels like you could read it as a bedtime story. I wish it had been longer.

This is the start of a series, and it's a good one. Hilda is one of those heroines the world needs. She's part Pippi Longstocking with a dash of Bilbo Baggins, but you can also call her late for dinner (though that happens in another adventure.)

Lovely illustrations, dangerous foes, fanciful folklore, and just enough cuteness is found within. Looking forward to reading the rest. And also looking forward to the animated series (though that will be in 2018, so don't sweat it just yet.)

If Calvin of "Calvin and Hobbes" lived in Scandinavia, he'd be best friends with Hilda! Whimsy, wonderful drawings, and a heroine who's eager for adventure make this a fantastic read.

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.
