Thunderboy Jr.


Thunder Boy Jr.
Book by Sherman Alexie
Saturday, February 4 @ 11am

Thunder Boy Jr. is a charming story of a boy who loves his Dad, who people call Big Thunder--he just doesn't want to be Little Thunder. He wants to be more than a Junior. He wants his own identity. With the help of his younger sister, he searches for the perfect.

Research shows that boys will read if they are given materials that interest them.  Boys prefer to read Non-Fiction, Humor, Comics and Graphic Novels.
