's Top 10 Graphic Novels of 2013 Nominated for the 2014 Eisner for Best Publication for Kids! Plain smart and moving. John Stanley's Little Lulu meets Miyazaki. --Guillermo Del Toro

A perfect pitch between childlike adventure, subtle mystery, and gentle lyricism. --Booklist, STARRED REVIEW

[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

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

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. -Okazu

A beautifully drawn (literally and figuratively) comic. --The Observer

--The Hooded Utilitarian

My admiration for Luke Pearson just grows. Hilda's new urban world is wonderfully drawn for his enchanting female character and is sure to rouse admiration for her independent, sympathetic spirit. [...] The panels are engaging, often humorous and full of adventure. Perfect graphic storytelling! --Sal's Fiction Addiction'
