SummaryAdd a Summary
Claudette’s lot in life chafes her something fierce. If she had her way she’s be out there, sword in hand, battling baby-feet-eating giants and sea creatures and dragons and who knows what all. Instead she’s stuck living in a village with her best friend Marie, a girl who aspires to be a princess, and her little brother Gaston, a pastry chef in the making. When she can take it no longer, Claudette decides that she needs to plunge into an adventure of her own. Tricking Marie and Gaston into accompanying her, she sets out to destroy the mythic baby-feet-eating giant that terrorized her villagers in the past. Along the way she and her pals get in and out of various scrapes before at long last discovering that sometimes “monsters” aren’t all they seem to be.
