About the Book
A seafaring adventure! A storm! Giant turtles! Glowing slugs! A tale of excitement and surprise, Rooster’s Revenge, which follows both the acclaimed 2010 book The Chicken Thief and Fox and Hen Together (recently published) is sure to delight!
Together with Bear and Rabbit, the disappointed Rooster is making his way home over the sea when a terrific storm hits. After running aground in the storm, the trio finds itself in a strange cave. Rooster notices a mysterious glowing ball. What kind of a ball is it? Will it lead them to safety or to more trouble? And will the friends ever find their way home?
This richly funny illustrated offering from Béatrice Rodriguez is full of enchantment. It’s also a surprising guide to mending a broken heart.
Rooster’s Revenge is the third title in our Fox and Hen series and the fourth in our Stories Without Words series. Look out for our next wordless book The Big Seed by Arthur Geisert in Spring 2012.
Awards and Reviews
"Taken all together, the three books [see above] give children a look at adult feelings and the emotional negotiation that goes with them. Will they understand everything? Probably not. But the snapshot, presented so very whimsically, may help give them some intuitive sense of the emotional currents that swirl around them.
Plenty to look at and much to think about it this complex and funny trilogy conclusion." - Kirkus
