Review Quote*

"[Hilda's world] is. . . a glorious, exciting if also rather menacing place-one children will be eager to enter. It's also visually arresting: exuberant and lively and faintly Miyazakian."- New York Times

"Hilda is the little girl. And this is her folk tale. And pretty much everything you need to know about how good this is is there on that absolutely gorgeously delightful cover. By the end of it, you'll have exactly the same smile as Hilda has."- Forbidden Planet

"For adults ... Pearson's measured storytelling ... and detailed, imaginative artwork make Hilda and the Bird Parade an absolute treat to dive into. It's hard to imagine a better all-ages comic will be published this year."- Slate

"very enjoyable, it's imaginative and fun for kids and adults too!"- Renata Liewska, author of bestselling The Quiet Book

"If you know a young comics reader, or a a child that you'd like to turn into a comics reader- especially if they love fairy-tale-like stories- this would be a great place to start them. Hilda isn't a superhero, but she sure saves the day." -Erica Friedman for Okazu
