Review: Giants Beware!

Giants Beware! by Jorge Aguirre, illustrated by Rafael Rosado

Claudette doesn't dream of being a princess like most young ladies, instead she dreams of becoming a giant slayer. So after some clever trickery, she sets off with her best friend Marie and her pastry chef wanna be brother Gaston to fulfill her dream. The illustrations in this smart, zany graphic novel fit the story very well. I highly recommend this book for fans of twisted fairy tales or funny graphic novels.  It's appropriate for middle elementary age students and above. Adults will find humorous references that students might miss. This was a great read!

This review is based on a publisher supplied electronic copy.

Until next time, bon voyage and happy reading!
