Recipe for Revenge
Author: Written by Paul Tillery IV; illustrated by Paul Tillery IV and Meg Wittwer
The chicken of the Norse god Thor, bewitched with the power of thunder and lightning, returns to action in Thundercluck! Chicken of Thor: Recipe for Revenge—written and illustrated by Paul Tillery IV and Meg Wittwer.
The mighty chicken Thundercluck is in trouble. He and Brunhilde have run a-fowl of the gods of Asgard, and the best friends must fly the coop. But when a seasoned foe serves up more danger, it’s out of the frying pan and into the fire for these plucky heroes. Can their friendship handle the heat . . . or will they both be cooked?
