Hilda Bewildered

By Slap Happy Larry

From the creators of The Artifacts and Midnight Feast, Hilda Bewildered is a new illustrated short story for deep-thinking adolescent readers.

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, find the coldest time of day, then plug in some headphones to fully appreciate the beautiful soundtrack.
