ILLUSTRATOR: KADIR NELSON

DESCRIPTION:

Ever met that girl who you knew would set the world on fire? Well tie down you saddle and lace up your boots as you encounter this tall tale from the Old West of a special child who can harness the power of nature. Thunder Rose was born to humble circumstances but her extraordinary power and big, caring heart turn the tide in her favor and opens the door to amazing possibilities!

WHY I LIKE THIS BOOK:

Thunder Rose is a page turner from beginning to end with rip roaring antics and unbelievable outcomes that make you laugh and cheer for this one of a kind girl child. Jerdine Nolen presents a power packed message in a genre that often omits girls as major characters. Kadir Nelson’s illustrations are the perfect complement to this uproarious story with drama, color and magic bursting from each page. It will have you changing the lyrics of James Brown Soul Power to Girl Power as you witness the game changing courage and confidence of this one of a kind heroine letting girls everywhere know that the sky is the limit! Grab this one now for that special girl who you know will change the world!

*Great value in paperback. Also available in audio cassette.
