Surprisingly sweet but not gooey: a ripping yarn with a heart. My eight-year-old loved it.

This was a super fun adventure with great characters and even some depth. Strong girls and strong boys with real character development.

recommended by Sarah from her Maverick list (graphic novel committee)

I don’t think I’m being ridiculous when I gush to you about Jorge Aguirre and Rafael Rosado’s Giants Beware! Perhaps the first in a series, perhaps a single stand-alone title, all I can really say is that it is chock full o’ charm. Good for boys, great for girls, fabulous for gatekeepers, this might even win over those folks who don’t normally go in for comics. Great GNs for kids may come out once in a blue moon, but when they’re as good as this little number you may decide that it was worth the wait.

Claudette’s lot in life chafes her something fierce. If she had her way she’s be out there, sword in hand, battling baby-feet-eating giants and sea creatures and dragons and who knows what all. Instead she’s stuck living in a village with her best friend Marie, a girl who aspires to be a princess, and her little brother Gaston, a pastry chef in the making. When she can take it no longer, Claudette decides that she needs to plunge into an adventure of her own. Tricking Marie and Gaston into accompanying her, she sets out to destroy the mythic baby-feet-eating giant that terrorized her villagers in the past. Along the way she and her pals get in and out of various scrapes before at long last discovering that sometimes “monsters” aren’t all they seem to be.
