Review:

"Kadir Nelson's illustrations...are terrific. Rose is just the right combination of tough little girl and superhero."

"Throughout, [Thunder Rose] shows a reflective bent that give her more dimension than most tall-tale heroes: a doff of the Stetson to her and her creators."
-Kirkus Rreviews (starred review)

"Kadir Nelson's illustrations of Rose's family, thrilled and loving as any first parents but more than a little bedazzled by this neonate, are terrific. Rose is just the right combination of tough little girl and superhero. Welcome to the tall-tale club, Rose." Chicago Tribune (September 14, 2003)
