Synopsis

Dragons Beware! by Jorge Aguirre

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!

Reviews

Praise for Giants Beware!:

Kirkus Kids will eat up this installment and eagerly await the next series offering.

The series manages to foreground reasoning, diplomacy, and cooperation without sparing any of the freewheeling action or dragon-vomiting humor.
