"Pearson's utter lack of pretension keeps Hilda feeling fresh, while his reading of folktales and Tove Jansson's Moomin series embeds Hilda in the long history of children's stories. [...] Hilda's dilemmas, while fantastic, also feel real [...] Pearson has found a lovely new way to dramatize childhood demons, while also making you long for your own cruise down the fjords."
--The New Yorker

"An imaginative, heartwarming, beautifully illustrated tale that all ages can enjoy. Exploring the relationship between Hilda and her single mother, it's a great read for parents and their children, providing plenty of visual stimulus for younger readers in the context of an engaging narrative with a strong emotional foundation."
--AV Club

"Pearson has perfected Hilda's Scandinavian-style fantasy world, and his artwork is as captivating as ever."
--Booklist, STARRED REVIEW

"Luke Pearson's Hilda books are the most imaginative, most inspiring, and most beautiful all-ages stories published in the past decade. [...] This newest volume [...] is the best yet, suggesting that Hilda may join Tintin and the Moomins as comic-book immortals."
--Slate, Slate's 10 Favorite Comics of 2016

"FIVE STARS [...] Another stunner in the episodes of Hilda."
--Youth Services Book Review

"With a wonderfully expressive color palette and ever-sterling eye to quiet, unblemished storytelling, Pearson's latest stands proudly among his other works. We look at works like Tintin as being distant memories of faded comics greatness; but Hilda is a series which surely will one day be looked at as a successor to the works of people like Herge, and a future classic in its own right."
--Comics Alliance

"Hilda is such a smart, delightful and relatable character for adventurous young girls to read about."
--Mental Floss

"a significant turning point in the series [...]Pearson's proven that this isn't a series of books that repeat actions from episode to episode, but rather a coherent serial that's slowly building to something more fantastic, calling back to old characters and details that may not have seemed important when they were introduced."
--Rob Clough
