This book was so good that I read it around ten times. Also it taught me a little bit about space believe it or not.

I loved this book!

I've read 16 pages of this book and it's funny to me and her sisters are funny to, but what was really to me was when Mirka thew a rock at one of the bullies.

YEESH!!!

YEESH!!! This book was a TOTAL DISAPPOINTMENT! It was so confusing! I read it over like 5 times and I still don't get the plot!! I'd say that you shouldn't read the book. It made me think about conflicts I have. Each time I read it I'm in a bad mood for the rest of the day. It just seriously bums me out. So as you can probably tell, I would not recommend it. I'd give it zero stars but it won't let me.

Dissapointment

This book was just OK

This book might appeal to some audiences but not to me. The book was sorta plain and I got mad at some of the characters.

I loved the mix of fantasy and judaism in this book, I can't even begin to imagine how crazy it would be if the events in this book happened in my life. It just seems unbelievable, in a good way of course. Normally, I don't like graphic novels that much, but I loved this one. If you are choosing between this book and another, choose this one!!!

greatest book ever!

This book made me think more about being Jewish.

This book is a really good book. I recommend this book for you. If you pick this book to read you made a smart choice. This book is about a girl named Mirka. In the book a witch take's a piece of Mirka's hair and used it to turn a meteorite to a copy of mirka. They have a contest to see who is a better mirka. Read the book to find out who wins.

I liked the book because it told us more about being Jewish and about some holidays. It taught me how to not be rude or try to be someone else. It is okay to be me.

A very good graphic novel with unique problems that make you think. I recommend the rest of the series too.

A Mix of a real life of a Jewish girl, and an imaginary life of a Jewish Sword-fighter.

This book taught me more about Jewish holidays, rituals, and even food.

Mirka is so funny in this story. She single handedly defeated a troll in the last book, and now can she defeat this magic shape-shifting meteorite? Mika understands why it is important to be Jewish, but will the meteorite take it all away? Find it out in Hereville: How Mirka Met a Meteorite

This is one of the best novels I've read!

It made me realize that your parents tell you to do something for a good reason. If you disobey something bad might happen to you.

This is the BEST!!!

This book is sooo awesome! It has the perfect amount of everything: Jewish values, adventure, Suspense, family, and everything else that makes a good book. I recommend this book to anyone, but I suggest you read the first book in the series first.

I rated this book 5 stars because it made me think about really important things, like the fact that I was reminded that, no matter what, my family, well, I love them and recognize that if it wasn`t for my parents, I`d be dead. I suggest you read this book; it`s really good!

This book is a very good book for kids that already know what they wanna be when they grow up. I personally know and learned from this book that I want to be a figure stater or a football player. Mika had no doubt on anything else but being a sword fighter. Hope u enjoy this book.

This book isn't realistic in the least bit. That's what makes it good. It's short and sweet, but definitely one to re-read. Mirka is destined to make you laugh. You can imagine my joy when I saw the sequel. If you liked this, look out for Hereveille; How Mirka got her Sword

Great Book

This book is funny in exciting. As Mirka learns to live with a copy of herself it makes you wonder what living with a copy of you would be like. Overall a fantastic book.

What I really liked about this book was that it wasn't like one of those books that are too long or too short, it was a nice sized book. I also like that it was a graphic novel,so when you have to stop reading the book, you're not really missing such a big part.

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

I love Hereville. It was so fun to read. I liked that it was a comic. Mirka is a very good character. She likes to sword fight just like me. I like that they made her have a step mother. I think that is unique in a way. One of the coolest parts is the meteorite. It makes the story more interesting. I also like that they added a witch. When I read that part I was excited to see what was next. The thing I like the most is the part where Mirka goes into space. It would be cool if Mirka stayed in space a little longer.

The book is an awesome story!

Mirka and Metty each have a place in their own family, but Metty does not belong on Earth. I like that Mirka knits so many berets, and in the end her beret saves her from dying in outer space.

So this book was really great, but I think that if I heard this story like someone reading it to me, I would think of it being more like a normal book not a comic. I wouldn't of selected his book if it was a normal story. It made it a lot less boring.

If you like fast paced adventure, then this book is for you!

5 stars!

How Mirka Met a Meteorite is a graphic novel. If you like a fast paced adventure, then this book is for you. Grounded Mirka, having nothing better to do than knit a hat, wins her freedom with a game of chess. Mirka goes to find the troll to get her sword. She asks to see the other magical items. While in the midst of trying to flood the witch’s house with pudding, the troll summons a meteorite! As Mirka is running to the witch’s house as fast as possible, the witch grabs some of her hair and turns the meteorite into Mirka! After all kinds of mayhem Mirka must get rid of Metty [The meteorite]. Will she ever get rid of her?

Great for all kids!
