"I loved it."
Bestselling author Daniel Pinkwater (The Hoboken Chicken Emergency) returns in classic form with the illustrated, middle-grade adventures of one young Molly O'Malley: a dwarf (well, dwarf-ish) girl who just won't settle for a boring life in the Catskills.
"Captivating, cool and crazy!" --Sam Lloyd, author of Mr. Pusskins
"A Pinkwater whirlwind in all its glory."--Booklist
Molly O'Malley is a clever, adventurous girl. She is also a Dwerg. Dwergs are strange folks who live very quietly in the Catskill mountains, have lots of gold, and are kind of like dwarves (but also not!).
Molly isn't interested in cooking and weaving, as she is expected to be. So, she sets off to see the world for herself. Which means a new job, a trip to New York City, prowling gangsters, an adorable king, a city witch, and many historical ghosts. More importantly, it means excellent pizza, new friends, and very quick thinking.
Now someone is pursuing the Dwergs for their gold. Can Molly O'Malley save the day?
