From the creators of The Artifacts and Midnight Feast, Hilda Bewildered is an illustrated short story for deep-thinking adolescent readers and above.
Somewhere in a non-specified European country, Princess Hilda comes of age. She must deliver a prepared speech at midnight tonight, charged with the task of ‘opening winter’. Unfortunately for Hilda, she is terrified of speaking in front of a live audience.
Put on your close-reading hats for this one. Prepare a cup of peppermint tea and wait for the cold to set in.
