What’s a young Orthodox Jewish girl to do when all she really wants from life is to slay dragons? She’s not short on adversaries—petty bullies, disagreeable talking pigs, and even a crafty troll stand in the way of her retrieving the dragon-slaying sword she’s got her hear set on. But before she can master any of that, she’s got to survive knitting lessons with her delightfully argumentative stepmother…
