Out of stock
Thunder Boy Jr. is tired of sharing a name with his dad. He wants his own name, “a name that sounds like me . . . that celebrates something cool that I’ve done.” But how will he choose? Full-color illustrations digitally created using colors and textures from “the remains of an antique house in Xalapa, Mexico.”
