by Beatrice Rodriguez
Ages 3-5 32 pages Enchanted Lion September 2011 Hardcover    

Rooster's Revenge is the third and final wordless book in the Fox and Hen series.

A terrible storm washes Bear, Rabbit and Rooster onto an island filled with mushrooms that grow as tall as trees and slugs that light up the night. When a team of turtles brings them to a cave to recuperate, Rooster finds a glowing ball that seems to be hovering above a nest. He tries to sneak away from Bear and Rabbit when he claims the object for himself, but they are able to follow him home with the help of some extraordinarily strong bats and fish.

Readers may conclude Rooster is underhanded and mean when they see how he treats his friends, but the author reveals a kinder, gentler side of Rooster when the mysterious ball accidentally breaks open and a parentless baby dragon appears. The story ends with a happy reunion and a much needed hug for Rooster.

Rodriguez’s stories are poignant because by the end of each Fox and Hen story, she shows families and friendships growing stronger together in number and affection.
