Each spring, a water monster comes out of the lake to steal Thunderbird’s chicks. Determined not to let this continue, Thunderbird snatches up a human hunter to help her foil the monster. With Brave Wolf contributing some creative thinking and Thunderbird contributing some dry logs, a big pile of rocks, a freshly killed buffalo, and a rain shower, the monster is greeted by more than a few helpless chicks. Martin’s drawings—especially of the monster getting its comeuppance—are perfect.
