Jamie Canavés is the Tailored Book Recommendations coordinator and Unusual Suspects mystery newsletter writer–in case you’re wondering what you do with a Liberal Arts degree. She’s never met a beach she didn’t like, always says yes to dessert, loves ‘80s nostalgia, all forms of entertainment, and can hold a conversation using only gifs. You can definitely talk books with her on Litsy and Goodreads. Depending on social media’s stability maybe also Twitter and Bluesky.

This Riot Recommendation asking for your favorite all-ages comics is sponsored by Nobrow and Flying Eye Books.

HIlday and the Hidden People cover imageMeet Hilda: explorer, adventurer, avid sketchbook-keeper and friend to almost every creature in the valley! Join our beloved heroine as she encounters her very first troll, negotiates peace with some very persnickety elves, and reunites two lovelorn ancient giants. Fantastic creatures and daring adventures are all just part of another average day for Hilda, but what will she do if she is forced to move to Trolberg city, far away from her beloved valley home? Dive into the adventure with this illustrated chapter book, based on the first two episodes of the show.

In I-love-book-coincidences, Hilda happens to be playing in the background on Netflix while I write this. And you know Rioters love comics, and all-ages comics because we read everything! It’s also lovely when you can discuss something you’ve read and loved with anyone, regardless of their age. Plus, who doesn’t want to get to read their kids a comic that they aren’t having to suffer through? That’s why we’re asking you to tell us your favorite all-ages comic down in our comments section. And next week, when we’re done buying them all, we’ll have a nice list for you!
