" 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? " said.

"3.5 stars. Art is fantastic, the tall tale western style story could have used one more round of cuts to make it truly epic. As it was my kids enjoyed it, and it was great to find more books with African American main characters which aren't about basketball, buses, or marches (not that those aren't good too, but AA need to be represented in all sorts of stories). The story starts off strong but gets a little wordy about 2/3 of the way through and I had to start skipping parts to keep my kids interested. Great premise and art though." said.

" Parts of this story were odd to me...like her talking as a newborn baby, but it was cute and I enjoyed reading it to my toddler. " said.

" What's not to love in this tall tale? I was particularly lassoed in giggles by the idea of where barbed wire originated. " said.

" Forget you, Calamity Jane - all hail Thunder Rose! " said.

" I chose this book because I love Kadir Nelson, and his illustrations did not disappoint, but the text was hard to follow. I appreciated the folk tale style, but I didn't connect to the story of Thunder Rose as much as I would have liked given her strength & bravado. " said.
