“YOU ARE FOOD!” This helpful reminder kicks off a rollicking battle against evil, straight out of the powerhouse imagination of Guillermo Del Toro, director of visionary films like PAN’S LABYRINTH and HELLBOY! Jim and Tub are your usual high school misfits, spending the days dodging the local bully and trying not to embarrass themselves in front of the coolest girl in class. But when Jim starts seeing odd things--things that can’t possibly be real--it soon becomes apparent that something monstrous lies beneath them, an entire underworld of creatures beyond imagining. And they are very VERY hungry! Frightening, hilarious and full of adventure, TROLLHUNTERS is the most fun I’ve had reading all year! And check out Del Toro’s amazing full-color illustrated plates!

About the Author

Guillermo del Toro is one of the most creative and visionary artists of his generation whose distinctive style is showcased through his work as a filmmaker, screenwriter, producer and author. Born in Guadalajara, Mexico, del Toro first gained worldwide recognition for the 1993 Mexican-American co-production "Cronos," a supernatural horror film. In 2004, del Toro directed and co-wrote the action-adventure sci-fi thriller "Hellboy" starring Ron Perlman in the title role. Del Toro earned international acclaim as the director, writer and producer of the 2006 fantasy drama "Pan's Labyrinth." In all, the film garnered more than 40 international awards and appeared on more than 35 critics' lists of the year's best films. In 2013, del Toro wrote and directed the epic sci-fi action-adventure "Pacific Rim" starring Charlie Hunnam and Idris Elba, which has grossed over $400 million worldwide.

Del Toro has also turned his attention to publishing. With novelist Chuck Hogan, he co-authored the vampire horror novel "The Strain," which was published in June 2009 by William Morrow. They have since collaborated on "The Fall" and "The Night Eternal" which make up "The Strain Trilogy." All three books debuted as The New York Times top-ten bestsellers. Dark Horse Comics has also issued a graphic novel series adapted from the trilogy. In October 2013, Harper Design published "Guillermo del Toro Cabinet of Curiosities," a lavishly illustrated book that contains notes, drawings, and untold creatures from del Toro's private journals and filmmaking diaries, with never-before-seen characters, art, and ideas of things to come.
