I loved this book even though she was kind of mean to her half sister.T his book was sooooooooo good that i read it in at least 20 minutes. I recommend this book very highly.

This book was fine, but a little strange and confusing at times.

This book was just OK

This book made me think more about the importance of family.

This book was exciting, action-packed, and dramatic, but it had some parts that were unclear. Also, it was a little TOO dramatic. And too full of feelings. Unhapy feelings. So I'd only reccomend reading this if you like drama and strong feelings. But it's a little fun to read, though. This is how much I like this book: :\ Which is: Sort Of.

I would very carefully check out another book by this author- before I bought it. If I had known about it more and read it somewhere else before I got it I would've chosen something else. I wouldn't recommend it to people who don't like cartoony things and think they're gross like I do.

Loved it!!!!!!!!

This book was awesome! I couldn't take my eyes away! Mirka is a person with a fun personality, and how she gets into trouble everywhere she goes is soooo funny. It is a great book because while you're having the time of your life reading it, you are also learning about Judaism, and even learning a little Yiddish. You have to read this book!!!!!!!!

it was not the best but it did have a good ending

OK, I would give this a 5-star rating, but this is DEFINITELY the scariest of all three, so that brings my rating down. Plus, the first time I read it, I was a little confused. Now it makes sense. But, other than that, LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!!! Oh yeah I have read the first two, so the "I will read more books by this author" is true. I LOVE HEREVILLE BOOKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Although I liked this book, there was just so much going on that there may have been a bit TOO much. First there was the fish, then Layele, then the mysterious package that never came...All in all a good book, just a bit too much character-wise for the casual reader.

This book was great!

This book made me think more about the importance of family.

This is a very scary book about witches, trolls, giant fish that swallows heads and creepy birds who think of dead fish. I would not read this book if I were you. It gives kids and dogs if you read to your dog nightmares. If you want to get this book you better think twice.

I HAVE read the other Mirka books! They are all awesome! I wish I could enter two choices in one category. It made me think about the importance of family AND friends! But all the characters (that are human, at least) are family, so family fits more. But the book is awesome, so who cares!?

Mirka is a self-reliant girl who has met a witch, saved a magical, talking pig and battled a magic troll. Yeah I know crazy, right? But when she tries to figure out her stepmother's past, and babysit her younger half-sister, Leyele, things don’t go as well as planned. Will Mirka be able to save Leyele and the rest of the family plus defeat a magical, talking fish?!
