"In Hilda, Luke Pearson has created a truly odd and amazingly beautiful world-Stunningly personal and original. I am in awe of his imagination. He is a real inspiration."
-Mike Mignola, creator of Hellboy
"Pearson thinks kids can handle a lot: visually, emotionally, thematically. That's why they like his work, and why I do too. Simplicity can be a virtue, but there's also something to be said for embroidery, and he takes just enough from each of those attributes to make strong books [...] The panel structure of Mountain King is as visually complex as the range of emotions in the story, and yet neither is hard to read. It feels cinematic without leaving comics behind."
-Hillary Brown, The Comics Journal
"This is an adventurous and delightful story that follows Hilda as she wakes up a troll and seeks to become human again. With lots of action, a tenacious heroine, and fantastic illustrations, children are sure to enjoy following the latest graphic novel installment of HILDA AND THE MOUNTAIN KING. Highly recommend for reluctant readers and/or anyone who wants to enjoy a thrilling and engaging fantasy adventure."
