My favorite yet in this series! And if the “The End” at the end means the series is over, I am sad, but it was a perfect end. If not, I can’t wait for more adventures.
I mean, this series is so cute. It's silly and bold, with fantastic cartoony art, and is sure to find a receptive and happy audience among young readers. Great for read alongs with even younger readers!

Claudette continues to yearn for adventure. After her previous battles with giants and dragons, she is more determined than ever to win fame and glory with her courage. The Marquis who rules Mont Petit Pierre does not approve of Claudette's behavior or her influence on his own daughter, Marie. When Claudette manages to be chosen for the Warrior Games, the stakes are very high. Either she wins, or she has to dress as a little lady and give up her wooden sword and Marie will be sent away to boardi ...more

This was such a fun read! I love that the characters have deepened and grown over the trilogy, even while maintaining their personalities. A true hero's arc for Claudette in Monsters Beware!
Claudette marches to her own music, which is not something that is appreciated by everyone in her village. When her town hosts the Warrior Games, she's primed to use all her sword-fighting skills to bring to bear in winning the prize and lead her team to victory. But once her brother Gaston and friend Marie join her team, the marquis must soften the competition events at the request of his wife in order not to have Marie endangered. Thus, to Claudette's dismay, they compete in butter churning, s ...more

This was the final book in the Chronicles of Claudette series. This was a wonderful conclusion to this series. I love how fun this series is and really enjoyed it a lot.

The illustration is very cartoony, bright, and colorful. It fits the tone of the story nicely and is easy to follow.

This book didn’t have quite as much action as the previous books, but was still very engaging. The ending was fantastic and makes this a super feel good and happy series!

Overall this is an awesome middle grade graph

A fun conclusion to a sweet series. My 8 year old and 6 year old loved the series
Fun with a monstrous twist!

Claudette ("the cloddish") was extra annoying in this vol. Just listen to Marie and Gaston!!
But the giggles were still there (Marie: "But, father, Claudette is the only child in our town whose misguided thirst for honor and glory is as great as your own."), and poor Claudette when they lost... I hate to say I enjoyed that part, but the story was very strong there. And a happy ending to tie everything together. <3

If this is the end, it’s a great one. If it’s not, it’s still a great story.

While the emphasis on fighting monsters vs “real work” was a bit heavy handed, I did enjoy the final chariot scene where Claudette shines. The plot twists were lovely as well as the trio all using their strengths to come together and save the day. I hope the series does continue, perhaps with a brief time skip so they age up a little, despite it saying The End....

Aguirre, Jorge Monsters Beware! (Giants Beware, #3), illustrated by Rafael Rosado, 170 pages. GRAPHIC NOVEL. First Second (Macmillan), 2018. $15. Content: Language: G; Mature Content: G; Violence: G.

Claudette wants to be chosen for the Warrior Games to represent her village because she loves a good fight. After she strategically convinces all the other kids in her village to bow out of the competition, Claudette, her brother Gaston and her best friend Marie are chosen as the team. Marie’s fathe

I was SO excited to see that a third Claudette book had slipped pass my radar and was available in the library catalog.

...But, IMHO, it was a little lack-luster for me. Something about the art didn't hold it's usual charm and felt rushed to me? Ironic, given that it's been awhile since the 2nd book came out! The story was also lacking. Over all, the ending was sweet (I admit, I cried a bit!), and it was a good potential end to the series (Is it? I have no idea!).

My 8yo and 10yo have been suckers for these for years. As a parent reader the shine is wearing off a little - you know Claudette will barge in sword blazing, Marie will try to reason with the baddie, and Gaston will wish he were in the kitchen. There will be plenty of yuks along the way. I would have liked a little character growth or something else to keep it fresh, but my kids had no such bones to pick and thought it was awesome.

A glorious ending (???or will there be more???) to a fabulous series. Claudette for the win -- OVER monsters and FOR her friends and family. Great back matter that shows how the story was revised even after it was finished.

Aw, I always forget how cute and awesome this series is. But then a new one comes out and I am delighted to be reminded. This is maybe the last one so I'll miss, but it's a great ending. And shout out to Jeni's Splendid!

Some how I wasn't enjoying this as much as the other two. Probably just didn't feel as refreshing and was starting to get a bit tired. But then I really like how it concluded so 3.5 stars. I also feel that this one may actually have a more memorable story. See? Already coming back around to it.

Funny, exciting and well-drawn. Great for kids and adults. Claudette is the bull in the china shop, and her brother Gaston and best friend Marie bail her out as necessary, with wits and diplomacy. A really fun series.
Breakfast and Books
Even though the story-line is geared for younger audiences and too young for MS/HS. I still found the story to be cute and entertaining. I really enjoyed Claudette's adventures and her determination to win. I can see this graphic novel series being a hit in any elementary library.

What a finale! I'm sad the series is over, but boy, what an ending. Claudette is rather obsessed with fighting monsters. And with the annual Warrior Games coming to her town, she is determined to be chosen as one of the competitors. But the Marquis, despite being the father of her friend Marie, doesn't like or approve of Claudette. After convincing the other kids not to volunteer, Claudette finds herself, Marie, and Gaston representing their town. But the Marquis' wife is worried about Marie and ...more
