About the Author: Luke Pearson

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.

"Pearson’s whimsical artwork—a cross between Lucky Luke and Miyazaki—creates a magical spell of a mysterious world of hidden creatures, and the production of the book make it a treasure in itself. The story—comparable to the Adventures of Polo series by Regis Faller and Copper by Kazu Kibuishi—never flags in imagination or wonder"—Publishers Weekly
"If you haven't heard of Luke Pearson, buddy, you have been hiding under a particularly uninteresting rock this past year."—Dan Berry, The Comics Bureau

"Pearson's latest comic, the spell-binding contemporary fairytale Hildafolk, feels just as at home in publisher Nobrow Press' visually intelligent catalogue as it does between good old fashioned yarns like Bone and The Adventures of Tintin in my bookcase."—Martin Steenton, Avoid the Future

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.

This brand new hardback edition of Hilda and the Troll (previously sold as Hildafolk in paperback) is packed with bonus, never-before-seen content and offers a fresh chance to read the very first outing in Luke Pearson's ever-popular series of magical Hilda adventures.

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.
