Pearson has perfected Hilda's Scandinavian-style fantasy world, and his artwork is as captivating as ever. --Booklist, STARRED REVIEW

FIVE STARS [...] Another stunner in the episodes of Hilda. --Youth Services Book Review

With a wonderfully expressive color palette and ever

An imaginative, heartwarming, beautifully illustrated tale that all ages can enjoy. Exploring the relationship between Hilda and her single mother, it's a great read for parents and their children, providing plenty of visual stimulus for younger readers in the context of an engaging narrative with a strong emotional foundation. --AV Club

a significant turning point in the series [...]Pearson's proven that this isn't a series of books that repeat actions from episode to episode, but rather a coherent serial that's slowly building to something more fantastic, calling back to old characters and details that may not have seemed important when they were introduced. --Rob Clough

I heartily recommend the Hildafolk stories for young readers - especially those who love fairytales and myths - and for whom you would like to provide strong role models who don't just slay the dragon and leave. --Yuricon
