Note: 
A spirited, witty, and above all else, fun graphic novel with a headstrong and appealing heroine. Eleven year-old Mirka has more on her mind than learning the “womanly arts” that her stepmother, Fruma, insists she acquire; she would like to slay a dragon. To fight a dragon, you need a sword and Mirka’s quest for a sword is the focus of this story set in an Orthodox community. The color illustrations strike the perfect balance of showing a realistic Orthodox community, while creating the perfect backdrop for a fairytale.
