Ma’antah, a mere child, be more clever than an honored king? This girl,
nicknamed Sense Pass King, possesses amazing powers. She communicates with
animals, speaks the languages of many different villages and conquers a
seven-headed fiery monster. For these reasons the king decides she is too
powerful and dangerous and must be killed. Learn how this young heroine
uses courage and wisdom to outwit the king and escape his snares, proving
herself to be a worthy ruler. (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania
