Charles M. Schulz Award-winning cartoonist Barry Deutsch introduces a quirky and adventurous heroine in the "utterly ingenious" (Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review) Hereville: How Mirka Got Her Sword, first in a fantasy graphic novel series.

Spunky, strong-willed 11-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 heroine.
