Make way for Claudette the giant slayer in this delightful, fantastical adventure!

Claudette's fondest wish is to slay a giant. But her village is so safe and quiet! What's a future giant slayer to do?

With her best friend Marie (an aspiring princess), and her brother Gaston (a pastry-chef-to-be), Claudette embarks on a super-secret quest to find a giant-without parental permission. Can they find and defeat the giant before their parents find them and drag them back home?

Giants Beware! offers up a wondrous, self-contained world in the tradition of the very best of Pixar. Claudette and her friends will have you laughing out loud from page one.

            This graphic novel is about a girl who wants to hunt down a giant. This girl's name is Claudette, Claudette doesn't go alone on this adventure though she brings along her brother and her friend. They do reach the giant but when they do they see that he isn't so bad after all. He was a kind giant and all he wanted was friends. So they saved the giant instead of hunting it.

                  Claudette wants to kill a giant. A baby-feet eating giant to be exact. So, she lies to her friends (Gaston and Marie), because she overheard Marie's powerful father talking about it. So, they set off, and go through many trials such as the Apple Hag, and the Mad River King. They finally reach the giant, but it turns out that he's not such a baby feet eating giant at all! He just wants friends...but in the meanwhile, Claudette and Gaston's father have been following them, and so has Marie's father, and Claudette knows that Marie's father will stop at nothing to kill this giant. So, they devise a plan to save the giant, and they live happily ever after.

                      Giants Beware is a graphic novel about a girl with two friends traveling to slay the giant. I like this book because it's adventurous and magical. I like fantasy genre books and I also like comic books.
