– Flying Eye Books
I am a die-hard Hilda fan and I think this is my favourite one to date.
My new favourite book character. Luke Pearson’s Hilda is great!
While on an expedition to seek out the magical creatures of the mountains around her home, Hilda spots a mountain troll. As she draws it, the blue-haired explorer starts to nod off… when she wakes, she finds herself lost in a snowstorm and her troll has totally disappeared. On her way home, Hilda ventures deep into the woods, befriends a lonely wooden man and narrowly avoids getting squashed by a lost giant.
I discovered Nobrow through my obsession with Flying Eye Books. Now I am obsessed by everything Nobrow. Last week I finally bought one of the Hilda books, Hilda and the Bird Parade, which I will be featuring on the blog soon. I loved it, Hilda is a fantastic character. If you read my blog or follow me on twitter you’ll probably know that I recently became the father of twins, 1 boy and 1 girl.
My mission is to create a vast library of amazing books for them to indulge in. I seek out books with strong female characters, books that challenge, books that are beautiful, books that are educational, books that funny and sad, books that are surprising and unpredictable.
Hilda is exactly the kind of character I want my son and daughter to read about. She is adventerous, courageous, kind and inquisitive.
