Books in this series

by Barry Deutsch - Graphic Novel

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!

by Barry Deutsch - Children's, Graphic Novel
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.

Welcome back to Hereville, where Mirka, the world’s first time-traveling, monster-fighting Orthodox Jewish girl, faces her greatest challenge yet: babysitting! When Mirka pushes her sister into a stream, they both get in too deep with an angry magic fish. No matter how hard Mirka fights this fish-out-of-water, it gets stronger and stronger --- and it’s out for revenge. Mirka is in over her head, and this time, her whole family is on the line! When the fish kidnaps her sister, Layele, Mirka must find a way to save her little sister, and the clues she needs are hidden in her stepmother Fruma’s past.
