I can't even describe how wonderfully beautiful these simple little books by Luke Pearson are.

"Little Hilda, with her blue hair and big red boots, loves her magical mountain home. Someone else, however, doesn't feel the same, and keeps sending strange, tiny letters insisting that Hilda and her family leave. Hilda is bewildered until she is given the ability to see what had been invisible: a miniature city of elves surrounding her house! Can she find a way to get along with her elf neighbours? And who is the dark, mysterious giant she keeps seeing at night? Whimsical and beautifully drawn, this 2nd volume in the Hildafolk series is sure to enchant readers who love Kazu Kibuishi's graphic novels."

This is a fun and whimsical look at scale. Hilda is the only one who can see both the tiny elves and the mountainous giants, and seems to be the only one who wants them all to get along. She doesn't just want it, she persevered in the face of frustration and obstacles. A delightful and odd little tale told with excellent illustrations.
