Hereville: How Mirka Met a Meteorite Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Welcome to Hereville, home of the first-ever wisecracking, adventure-loving, sword-wielding Orthodox Jewish heroine. A delightful mix of fantasy, adventure, cultural traditions, and preteen commotion, this fun, quirky graphic novel series will captivate middle-school readers with its exciting visuals and entertaining new 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!

Review:

"Deutsch has created a wonderful world in Mirka's insulated Orthodox village and continues to capture it adroitly... Mirka is unflinchingly likable because she is so tempestuous and inexact, and really, who can't relate to that? This truly clever series is lots of fun." Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Review:

"The graphic novel format serves the quirky story well, with strong inks and a subdued palette that emphasize characters' personalities and facial expressions as well as the tale's action. As with Mirka's first adventure, this volume brings diversity and wit to comics for young teens and tweens." The Horn Book Magazine
