Who wants to live with Hilda?

We are thrilled to announce that Merce Canals’ most recent project ‘Living With Hilda (can be inconvenient)’ has won the 36th Destino Infantile Apel les Mestres International Children’s Book Award! Last spring author Bel Olid sent Merce a tale about a little girl who was trying to adopt a new pet and these dynamic images are the result.
“Living with a crocodile might sound thrilling, but it can be inconvenient. She’s got so many teeth, she spends HOURS brushing them in the bathroom. And once they’re clean, she’s still a crocodile. What if she’s suddenly hungry and eats ME up? A parrot’s much better”.
As innocent as Hilda first appears with her large glasses, sweet bunches and braces, as the story unfolds you realise that maybe this funny girl is the real problem and not the beasts of the forest and the savannah…she is capricious and impatient and all of them disappoint her!
‘Living with Hilda (and its disadvantages)’ is published by Editorial Destino and out this month!
