Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On a dark night of howling rain and booming thunder, Jackson and Millicent MacGruder welcome a new baby girl into their lives. Imagine their surprise when she sits up, thanks them for bringing her into the world, and informs them that she's quite partial to the name Rose.

So begins the story of Thunder Rose, who drinks her milk straight from the cow and prefers the company of her bull, Tater, to any kitten or puppy. Rose is capturing outlaws by the time she's a teenager, but she always has time to find joy in a song. Jerdine Nolen and Kadir Nelson have created a tall tale--and a powerful new African American heroine--to delight readers of all ages.

Synopsis:

Meet Thunder Rose . . . a force to be reckoned with!

Synopsis:

A Coretta Scott King Honor-winning book, now in paperback

Synopsis:

Thunder Rose vows to grow up to be more than just big and strong, thank you very kindly--and boy, does she ever! But when a whirling storm on a riotous rampage threatens, has Rose finally met her match?

Synopsis:

An award-winning tall tale that introduces a powerful new African-American heroine: Thunder Rose, who drinks her milk straight from the cow and prefers the company of her bull, Tater, to any puppy or kitten. Full color.
