book review: giants beware

I was really excited about Jorge Aguirre and Rafael Rosado’s kids comic Giants Beware! and it did not disappoint. Claudette is a brave little girl in a town that’s very wary of the outside world. She tricks her little brother (who wants to be a sword-making pastry chef) and best friend (who wants to be a princess) into helping her on her quest to go kill the giant in the hills near the town (which no one has seen for ages).

The story does great things with impatience, bravery, cleverness and family. It reminded me tremendously of Bone, which is a very good thing. Highly recommended.
