Hilda and the Black Hound

Written by: Flying Eye Books

First line: Did you hear that, Twig?

Why you should read this book: A perfect example of bringing traditional folklore into the modern era, this comic-style book ushers us into the world of Hilda, a little Norwegian girl whose mother attempts to channel her natural exuberance into scouting. While desperately trying to earn a merit badge, any merit badge, Hilda instead succeeds into involving herself in the plight of the the nisses, local house elves who are finding themselves homeless in the wake of some peculiar activity. Hilda excels at finding mischief, and at setting things right.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You once adopted a stray puppy, and your parents took it to the country.
