Hilda and the black hound

Luke Pearson

Book - 2017

"The city of Trolberg has yet more secrets to unravel in an adventure where Hilda discovers her world is not quite held together in the way she thought it was. Hilda is sat in her tent, dwarfed by volumes of the Greater Fjords Wildlife Chronicles with a flashlight and her restless companion, Twig. But Hilda's not in the Fjords and it isn't raining. Hilda's pitched a tent in her room and it's been days since she's been out. In Hilda's new adventure, she meet...s the Nisse: a mischievous but charismatic bunch of misfits who occupy a world beside-- but, also somehow within-- our own and where the rules of physics don't quite match up. Meanwhile, on the streets of Trolberg, a dark specter looms..."--Provided by publisher.

Review by School Library Journal Reviews

Gr 3–5—While Pearson's wide-eyed, turquoise-haired protagonist goes about joining the Sparrow Scouts and learns some handy skills from building campfires to erecting shelters, a large, "wolf-like" creature prowls about Trolberg. People have gone missing, and a sighting of the hound ends Hilda's first camping trip. Back home, more mysterious happenings occur; all over town, Nisse (those furry-faced house spirits that live behind bookcases and the "gaps in the floorboards") are being tossed out in the street, forced to fend for themselves. After a face-to-face with the hound, Hilda sees an opportunity to earn her first scout badge, which thus far has eluded her. She visits the library, digs up newspaper articles, draws sketches of the creature, interviews townsfolk who may or may not have seen the creature, maps the locations of suspected sightings, and puts together a Common Core—worthy, book-length report earning her "Friend to Animals" badge. Unfortunately, the award ceremony is interrupted by the hound falling through the ceiling, but in the chase that ensues several mysteries are solved, including that of the Nisse's displacement. Sound like a lot of plot? It is, but Pearson pulls it off with aplomb. The full-size volume offers a minimum of 10 panels of varying sizes per page. Darker shades dominate when the beast lurks, and earth tones and reds and oranges when the characters go about their daily business. Touches of humor abound in both images and dialogue. A book sure to garner new fans for this feisty adventurer.—Daryl Grabarek, School Library Journal [Page 101]. (c) Copyright 2014. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
