From Charles M. Schulz Award–winning cartoonist Barry Deutsch, Hereville: How Mirka Met a Meteorite continues the graphic novel series that’s a delightful mix of fantasy, adventure, cultural traditions, and preteen commotion. “A well-crafted addition to a truly distinctive series.” —SchoolLibrary Journal (Starred Review) Welcome to Hereville, home of the first-ever wisecracking, adventure-loving, sword-wielding Orthodox Jewish heroine. Mirka is back, and she’s still the only sword-brandishing, monster-fighting Orthodox Jewish girl in town. Or so she thinks. When a misguided troll aims a meteor at the witch’s house, the witch grabs hold of the closest thing possible to transform the flying, flaming rock—and that would be Mirka’s hair. The meteor is changed, all right: It’s now Mirka’s identical twin. Doppelganger Mirka, vowing to be a better version of the real girl, sets out to charm all of Hereville, including Mirka’s own family. Our heroine challenges the meteor girl to a three-part contest . . . and the loser will be banished from Hereville forever! This fun, quirky graphic novel series will captivate middle-school readers with its exciting visuals and entertaining heroine.
