Scrappy Claudette sets out once again with her pal Marie and her little brother Gaston to right wrongs and fight evil. And this time, it's personal. Claudette is out to get the dragon who ate her father's legs...and his legendary sword. But as usual, nothing is as simple as it seems, and Claudette is going to need Marie and Gaston's help more than ever.

Funny, fast, high-energy storytelling in an inventive and perilous fantasy landscape makes Dragons Beware! a fantastic follow-up to 2012's middle-grade hit Giants Beware!

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3–6—After saving her village of Mont Petit Pierre from the savage Baby-Feet Eating Giant in Giants Beware (First Second, 2012), plucky heroine Claudette sets her sights on a new threat to her friends and family. Years before, the fearsome dragon Azra the Atrocious fought with Claudette's father and swallowed not only his magic sword, Breaker, but also his legs and an arm; now Claudette is determined to get the sword back. Before she can put her plan in motion, a more immediate foe threatens her home: the evil wizard Grombach has escaped his island prison and raised an army of gargoyles to destroy the town forever. Only Breaker can save them, so Claudette's father sets off to get it back. Incensed at being left behind, it is not long before Claudette enlists the aid of her brother Gaston and her friend Marie to follow and help her dad. This volume contains many of the same elements that made its predecessor so successful. The art perfectly suits the tone and action and the story is smart and funny. The true strength of the series, however, lies in the characterization. Claudette is just the right amount of bold and daring, Gaston is insecure but stronger than he realizes, and Marie is going to make a wonderful princess someday. Along with a great supporting cast, complete with seven lovelorn princes all vying for Marie's attention, no character is left behind. Kids will eat up this installment and eagerly await the next series offering. VERDICT Dragons Beware will delight fans of the first title.—Erik Knapp, Davis Library, Plano, TX
