Hilda and the Black Hound (2014)
language
English
4.48 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: I adore the books in this Hilda series. The drawing & characterization reflect the eye of a skilled film maker w/shifting perspectives, zooming in and out for dramatic effect. The large format (the size of a picture book) allow of a diverse array of frame sizes and lend themselve...

review 1: Just really, really love this series. I'm fairly new to graphic novels and comics. This series packs a punch with everything I want. Strong female lead; quirky characters, extras, and imaginary friends; love and respect for nature; curiosity. On top of that, the illustrations had...

review 1: Such a sweet addition to Hilda's story. She and her mom have moved to the city from their lovely (but squashed by a giant) home in the mountains. Hilda is a bit stir-crazy (naturally) and her mom is concerned about city perils (naturally). Thankfully she ditches her awful schoolm...

review 1: I stumbled across this gem while researching picture books, but it would be more appropriate to say this is a thin graphic novel. Printed in Belgium and published by a British agency, I was taken back to my childhood when I would dive into the wonderful stories of TinTin. This st...

review 1: Aw, man. Again with the Ivan Brunetti (who I haven't read, but Lynda Barry talks about sometimes) influence. Also, emooooo romance junkkkk. But dude, so well done -- a man looking out the window misses his wife levitating in the air, split into 16 pieces, reassemble self and floa...

review 1: Whoa! I had read about this series and was prepared for a good read, but this actually exceeded my expectations. The back cover blurb (I read the Swedish edition) compared this to Tove Jansson and Hayao Miyazaki, two of my all-time favorite artists. This I found a bit pretentiou...

review 1: Lovely artwork, wickedly funny story, all around good read.Luke Pearson's story Hilda and the Troll would have been something I would have loved as a child. It stars young Hilda, who enjoys camping in the rain, because nothing makes one feel cozier than knowing the damp and cold...

review 1: Beautiful book, just the way that I expected!Loved the illustration style, the colors, and the different ways that he approaches comics. The cover is amazing, making me wanna buy more stuff from Nobrow.The only reason why I didn't give 5 stars is 'cause it's too short. I mean, ok...

language
English

review 1: Like the other books in the series, "Hilda And The Bird Parade" is whimsical, tender, and much too brief. I was a little wary of Pearson taking Hilda out of the mountains and into the city but this book proves that she's bound to find adventure whenever she goes.The "Hilda" serie...
Hilda y la cabalgata del pájaro (2014)
language
English
4.28 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Great example of creating pacing and mood with panels and color. Distinct color scheme that is kind of retro (like old 60s photos). Does not elaborate at all on Hugin/Munin/Odin – just alludes to Scandinavian folklore (good segue to a discussion about them). Educational. While th...

review 1: A wonderful and attractive graphic story for children of unfolding problems on a number of scales. The story unfolds with a mix of whimsy and absurdity creating a simple and enchanting fantasy world to dwell in for a while. Pearson's illustrations are quietly evocative, their be...

review 1: This is a book that people of many ages can enjoy (and learn from!)- a hard thing to accomplish in an illustrated text! Young children will enjoy the fun pictures and Hilda's interactions with both tiny people and huge giants based on Norse mythology. Older kids and teens will ap...
