watch out giants, here comes Claudette!
GIANTS BEWARE by Jorge Aguirre and Rafael Rosado (First Second, April 2012 courtesy of NetGalley) is a GN for younger readers. Claudette wants to slay a giant. When a giant threatens her town, she enlists the aid of her two friends. Marie, who plans to be a princess when she grows up and Gaston, an aspiring chef, accompany Claudette as she sets off to confront the giant and defeat him before their absence is discovered by their parents. Humor abounds in this fantasy which taps deeply into wish fulfillment. <668>
