Hilda and the Stone Forest

Publisher: Flying Eye Books

Review

Hilda's mum has grounded her, fed up with Hilda making up stories to cover up her real activities: battling strange sea demons, exploring the forest, flying through the night on enormous magical birds. But when she persuades her brother Tontu to help her slip through a magic portal in the wall of her bedroom to see the troll fires up on the hill, Mum accidentally gets sucked through too, and Mum and Hilda end up somewhere they didn't expect.

In her fifth adventure, the daring Hilda is back on form with plenty of strange magic, but this time with mum in tow. This allows Pearson to explore their mother-daughter relationship - as they battle two-headed trolls, of course. With minimal text and plenty of brilliant comic-style visuals, Hilda will appeal to older reluctant readers as well as fans of magical adventure with a surreal twist.
