Tonnerre Junior porte le même nom que son père. Mais, il aimerait avoir un nom qui lui est propre; un nom qui lui ressemble. Il ne veut pas se faire appeler Petit Tonnerre. Alors, pourquoi pas Toucheur de nuages ou Courageux devant dix mille dents? Enfin, son père lui offre un nouveau nom. Un nom parfait empreint de complicité! Le ciel en sera tout illuminé et le lecteur aussi!

Les illustrations de l'artiste primée Yuyi Morales et le texte du célèbre Sherman Alexie abordent avec finesse la quête de l'identité, une question qui touche tous les enfants. Les créateurs font aussi un clin d'oeil à la culture autochtone.

Thunder Boy Jr. is named after his dad, but he wants a name that's all his own. Just because people call his dad Big Thunder doesn't mean he wants to be Little Thunder. He wants a name that celebrates something cool he's done, like Touch the Clouds, Not Afraid of Ten Thousand Teeth, or Full of Wonder.

But just when Thunder Boy Jr. thinks all hope is lost, he and his dad pick the perfect name . . . a name that is sure to light up the sky.
