There seems to be some confusion about this book so I think I can help clear that up:

This is the third book in a trilogy of silent (wordless) picture books, which wraps up with a surprising solution. But you can't just read this one and get anything out of it. I recommend your reading all three, The Chicek Thief first, The Fox and Haen second, and this one last.

Grumpy Rooster, Bear, and Rabbit encounter a storm as they sail home across the sea. When the ship wrecks, they are hauled into a cave on the backs of turtles. Rooster spies a glowing orb in the cave, and the three friends follow it as it leads them through the cave. Readers will want to see what happens when Rooster trips while holding the sphere. This imaginative wordless picture book offers room for imagination on the part of young readers who are certainly likely to want to read it more than ...more

I really liked the first one in this series (The Chicken Thief) and I liked the second one (Fox and Hen Together). This one was interesting to read, but it just didn't do it for me like the first two books did. If you liked those, you will probablly like this one as well. Perhaps I was just reading it on an off day for me. I did like the bear and the bunny though. They made me laugh.

As simple as it seems, a wordless picture book must effectively tell a story without the use of text. It's quite impressive when you think about it. This book did a great job of telling a story without words.

I have no idea what is happening in this book. I mean, I understand the pictures okay, but what about this is "Rooster's revenge?" He doesn't take revenge on anything and no one takes revenge on him...

I'd still recommend it to anyone looking for a wordless picture book, but after The Chicken Thief, this one kind of falls flat. It's the same story, but this time it's this horrible rooster who wants to steal some riches and then ends up getting a dragon baby out of the deal. I mean, what kind of parent will he be? What about this poor dragon baby's biological family? I'd like to see a sequel--Lyncoya's Revenge, maybe--where the dragon baby grows up and finds out how he came to live with his ado ...more

Love Rodriguez's wordless trilogy. Her animals are so expressive. Rooster is still unhappy about fox and hen when he sets off in a boat with bear and hare. After a storm washes them upon a mystery shore, rooster discovers an egg in a cave and is delighted. He continues on, totally self-absorbed an oblivious to the fate of his companions. They manage though, and even when the egg cracks, things do turn out well. Rodriguez's wordless story is a visual delight; each time I look I discover new detai ...more

Rooster is not happy to be taking a boat ride with Rabbit and Bear. They get caught in a storm, wash ashore, and sleep in a cave. Rooster sees a glowing sphere, grabs it, and runs towards home through a field of giant mushrooms, across a body of water, and through a forest. He accidentally drops the sphere and it breaks, but then a baby dragon hatches. All is well as all the young animals play together. An okay book.

a wordless picture book of a rooster (who is mad for some reason-maybe because he had to go on a trip with bear and rabbit??) who finds an egg and runs off with it leaving rabbit and bear in the dust (he's wearing an evil expression during all this). Then the egg hatches onec he arrives home and all is well. Didn't love it.

I loved the first book, but this one was rather bizarre. I haven't been able to find the second book yet, so that may clear up a few things, but I think perhaps the plot of this one is just meant to be bizarre. I do like what the rooster ends up with, though!

If you read this book on first without reading the previous two (the Chicken Thief, Fox and Hen together), then it might be hard to see how or what the revenge was about.

Very cute wordless picture book, must read the other books since I found out this is the third in the series. Reminded me a bit of Polo...
Yikes, it was too confusing/bizarre for me. I read that are two earlier books on the series. Maybe reading those may have helped.

A cute wordless story, which makes more sense if readers are familiar with the first two stories in the series.
We loved the chicken thief - this is the sequel. Definately lacking the magic of the first one.

I love these books. Although I can't quite figure out the "revenge" in this story.
