Equally charming whether the series is set in the city or country. Just loved it.

I didn't fall in love with the first Hilda book I read, but I saw something in it that made me want to try another. I'm glad I did, as I was much more thoroughly taken with this one. It's still characterized by whimsy, quirkiness, and a thoughtful central character, I just felt this one had more to say--or at least said it more effectively. This is a book that takes children very seriously--specifically Hilda's perspective and concerns--and is a champion of the oft-overlooked small. It doesn't skirt around conflict, fear, challenges, and sadness, yet it explores those issues through an odd, fun story. The pleasant illustrations make great use of perspective and always communicate clearly. I'm ready for the next one.
