Publisher's Summary

Cancel your dinner plans and dig in to Thundercluck! by Paul Tillery IV and Meg Wittwer. This is the first book in a hilarious new series stuffed with Norse mythology, black-and-white illustrations by the dozen, and a superhero chicken ready to ruffle some feathers. When danger calls . . . BAGAW! calls back! When an evil chef faces off against the god Thor, a hen's egg is caught in the crossfire and hatches into powerful chick called Thundercluck, beloved by the gods but a target for evildoers everywhere. For his own safety, the young chicken must fly the coop and hide out on Earth. But when the Under Chef returns and threatens to make the hens of Valhalla into rotisserie, Thundercluck scrambles to reclaim the power of thunder and hatch a plan to defeat him. Thundercluck! Half mortal. Half god. All-natural chicken.

Paul was born in Raleigh, NC. He's always loved drawing, storytelling, and off-kilter comedy. As a child, Paul struggled at school until third grade. Then he fell in love with reading. His grades improved, and so did his happiness in the classroom. He hopes to have that effect on young readers today! Paul created Thundercluck at the Savannah College of Art and Design. He earned his MFA from SCAD Atlanta in 2014, and has since been a SCAD professor of animation and computer arts.
