The Chronicles of Claudette

Written by Jorge Aguirre; illustrated by Rafael Rosado

First Second


Claudette is back AGAIN, and she’s ready to kick major monster butt!

She’s fought giants, clobbered dragons, and now Claudette faces her biggest challenge yet… herself! Well, that and a gang of vile monsters. It all begins when Claudette’s town hosts the annual Warrior Games. After some sneaky maneuvering, Claudette manages to gets herself, Marie, and Gaston chosen as her town's representatives. But none of Claudette’s past battles has prepared her for this. And to make matters worse, they must stop the vicious Sea Queen and her evil children from using the Warrior Games to free the dark Wizard Grombach and conquer the world!

In Monsters Beware!, the third and final book of the Claudette graphic novel series, Claudette is put the ultimate test. With her honor on the line will she learn that there's more to a fight than just winning?

Praise for Monsters Beware!

"[Monsters Beware!] plays out with energy and charm in Rosado’s swift, modern cartooning... the story never loses sight of the fact that friendship trumps winning, intelligence and diplomacy have their place in victory, and that it’s not just shape but intention that makes a monster."—Booklist
