Description:
Spunky, strong-willed eleven-year-old Mirka Herschberg isn't interested in knitting lessons from her stepmother, or how-to-find-a-husband advice from her sister, or you-better-not warnings from her brother. There's only one thing she "does "want: to fight dragons
Granted, no dragons have been breathing fire around Hereville, the Orthodox Jewish community where Mirka lives, but that doesn't stop the plucky girl from honing her skills. She fearlessly stands up to local bullies. She battles a very large, very menacing pig. And she boldly accepts a challenge from a mysterious witch, a challenge that could bring Mirka her heart's desire: a dragon-slaying sword All she has to do is find—and outwit—the giant troll who's got it
A delightful mix of fantasy, adventure, cultural traditions, and preteen commotion, "Hereville "will captivate middle-school readers with its exciting visuals and entertaining new heroine.
