9781907704253: Hilda and the Midnight Giant (Nobrow Edition) (Hildafolk)

In Hilda and the Midnight Giant, our protagonist finds her world turned upside down as she faces the prospect of leaving her snow-capped birthplace for the hum of the megalopolis, where her mother (an architect) has been offered a prestigious job. During Hilda's daily one-and-a-half hour trek to school she looks for ways to stall her mother's decision. She conspires with the beings of the mystical Blue Forest to delay the inevitable. Will they help or hinder her? More importantly, who is this mysterious Midnight Giant?

Luke Pearson is a comic book artist and illustrator, author of Hildafolk and Everything We Miss (published by Nobrow Press). Hildafolk, his first book for Nobrow Press, quickly gained him recognition as a leading proponent of the new wave of English cartoonists.

From the Back Cover:

Hilda is a little girl who has an uncanny ability to befriend even the most peculiar of house guests, but when an army of 'Hidden Elves' bombard her living room in the dead of the night with stones and forced eviction notices, she has to think twice before making these new creatures' acquaintances.

Under duress and in fear of losing her beloved home, she sets out on an adventure to secure her birth right and to find out who, if he even exists, is this mysterious Midnight Giant?

"Channelling Tove Jansson and Hayao Mizayaki, Pearson is developing his chops still further here, crafting pages as crisp and appealing as the best all-ages bande desinée albums of today. Hilda is the perfect plucky little heroine for this endearing 21st century folklore."
-Paul Gravett, author of 1001 Comics You Must Read Before You Die

About the Author:

Luke Pearson s Hildafolk series started as a single issue comic that has expanded into fives volumes of Scandinavian inspired, critically acclaimed graphic novels for children for the artistically daring publisher Nobrow and its dedicated children's imprint, Flying Eye Books as well as an upcoming original animated series for Netflix in 2018. Mr. Pearson’s notoriety with the Hilda series and his other comics have led him to storyboard episodes of Adventure Time, as well as illustration assignments for such prestigious outlets as The New York Times, The New Yorker and the New Republic. He lives in the United Kingdom, where he is currently working on the next Hilda story, the television series, and finding a way to get some sleep.
