    The unusual trio—Anya (a brave Jewess), Ivan (a traveling fool's son), and Håkon (a friendly water dragon)—that emerged from the adventurous pages of Anya and the Dragon (2019) have a new quest on their hands in this worthy sequel. Upon learning that her father was never released from his war service as was promised, Anya rashly decides to bring him home herself. She sets out with Ivan and Håkon at her side, but they've barely begun their journey when they are waylaid by a helpful spirit who transforms Håkon into a human (for his protection) and speeds the group to Kiev. There, a deal is struck with the tsar's daughter, Vasilisa: if the trio can capture the tree elf, known as the Nightingale, terrorizing travelers on one of the kingdom's roads, Vasilisa will make sure Anya's father is sent home. Once again, Pasternak pens a lively tale woven with magic and the Jewish faith, wherein friendships are tested both by circumstance and new romantic feelings, and threats are effectively neutralized through communication and compassion. Grades 4-7. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
