Meet Claudette, giant slayer extraordinaire…or so she would like you to think. The truth is, Claudette’s little village is a pretty safe and boring place and she hasn’t had a chance to try out her slaying skills. Deciding to take her destiny into her own hands, Claudette grabs a motley assortment of friends and hits the road to look for a giant. To Claudette’s delight, the crew (pastry chef kid brother Gaston, princess-in-training Marie, and adorable pug Valiant) quickly stumble into dangerous situations on their journey. Enchanted forests, raging rivers, and maybe even a real live giant wait beyond the village gates, and kids will love the bright lively illustrations and plucky heroine. 208 pages 1596435828 Ages 8 -12
