She-Ra and the Princesses of Power meets Dav Pilkey’s Dog Man in this high-octane and uproariously funny second book following Barb and her trusty yeti pal, Pork chop, on their quest to rescue her fellow warriors and liberate Bailiwick from the evil villain Witch Head!

Barb is a Berzerker, part of an elite crew of warriors who protect the land of Bailiwick from the scourge of monsters. The evil Witch Head has captured all the adult Berzerkers and Barb’s the only one who can save them. But she’s not alone—Barb’s got her own amateur crew of would-be zerks, made up of farmers, monsters, and her best pal Porkchop the yeti.

This ragtag gang must infiltrate Maug Horn, the monster capital where only monsters are allowed, and find Franny Fire Fingers, who they hope will lead them to the Wise Wizards and the power to fight Witch Head. But when even the powerful Shadow Blades word is no match for the evil Barb encounters, she must learn that her true power comes from her own heart.

Full-color digital illustrations.

School Library Journal

Gr 3-7-Barb and her fellow "zerks" (berserkers) have a lot of searching and battling to do if they are ever going to stop the shadowy Witch Head from summoning an army and destroying the land of Bailiwick. They will need more than swords and sorcery to fight the monsters on the way to and through the monster capital Maug Horn. Barb's stake in the quest gets extra personal when her mother reaches out to her in a dream. Her berserker mode gets her out of some tight scrapes, as does her yeti sidekick. Training from an adult barbarian helps her level up as a warrior, though her wits and heart are no less important to surviving each trial before her. VERDICT Barb's epic adventure combines the charming gags and story reversals of a Lewis Trondheim comic with the earnest boldness of Barry Deutsch's "Hereville" series. Start at book one.-Thomas Maluck
