Hilda and the Troll by Luke Pearson

I like Hilda.  She's a no-nonsense little girl with an odd pet that goes out for long walks and explores.  Sometimes she finds things she doesn't want to...

Flying Eye Books sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  It has been published, so you can find a copy at local bookstore now.

Hilda and Twig go off on adventure.  She's going to draw pictures of rocks.  She's having a wonderful time when she notices that one of the rocks has a nose.  That means it's a troll!  To keep a troll from bothering you, you put a bell on it's nose.  Twig does that for her.  Everything is fine until she falls into a nap and wakes late!

This is a cute tale with odd characters.  I'm not used to a stone troll or a wood man.  But both are in this story.  It's a short graphic novel that will appeal to young ones.  I like them, too.
