Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A seafaring adventure! A storm! Giant turtles! Glowing slugs! A wordless tale of excitement and surprise, Rooster's Revenge, which follows the acclaimed books The Chicken Thief and Fox and Hen Together 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 themselves 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 children's book The Big Seed by Arthur Geisert in spring 2012.

Béatrice Rodriguez is the author of The Chicken Thief (2010), which was a Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year and a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year, as well as an independent bookseller favorite. Born in 1969, Béatrice received her degree from the School of Decorative Arts in Strasbourg. She lives in France with her family.

Review:

"This conclusion to the wordless trilogy that began with The Chicken Thief picks up where that book ended, with Rabbit, Bear, and Rooster departing the happy couple. At sea, a storm dumps them on a mysterious island, where Rooster discovers a glowing, green ball and runs off with it. In action-filled panoramas, Bear and Rabbit pursue Rooster through exceptionally surreal landscapes before returning to their cozy farm, where Rooster gets a big (and heartwarming) surprise after dropping his treasure. Rodriguez remains a master of body language and facial expressions, and the final scene leaves no doubt of a happily-ever-after for all involved. Ages 4 — 8. (Sept.)"

Synopsis:

Marked by fine drawing, drama, humor, and sensitivity, this is the must-read final book in the Fox and Hen Trilogy.
