The comic from which the animated Netflix series sprang.

Sea spirits, giants, weird woodmen and trolls; Hilda’s outings never quite fall into the realm of the ordinary. And this one certainly has some surprises, but of course, as Hilda so adeptly points out: “such is the life of an adventurer”.

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.

Luke Pearson, author of Hilda and the Midnight Giant, Hilda and the Bird Parade, and Everything We Miss, has fast become one of the leading talents of the UK comics scene. Hilda and the Midnight Giant was selected as one of 2012’s twenty-five best illustrated children’s books by Publishers Weekly magazine. The book also won the Young People’s Comic Award at the 2012 British Comic Awards.
