This 2013 book lists all the hero and villain pets in the DC Super-Pets universe.  Many appear in the Super-Pets series of books, but I don’t think all of them do — for instance, Captains Cold and Boomerang and their pets have entries in this encyclopedia, but as far as I know they haven’t yet appeared in any books.  Professor Zoom and his newts appear in their own book, however, as do Gorilla Grodd and his pet monkey.
The art is absolutely fun and adorable, and the creators clearly had fun inventing all these pets.  It’s very kid-friendly and overall quite cute, and still readily available for sale.
(You can see the entries for the Rogues and their pets here.)

From 1986, this villain-centric RPG book contains character bios and scenarios for the characters to play.  The premise is about Goldface gathering villains — including several Rogues, but not limited to them — to become the crime boss of Central City.  It also contains maps of Central City, and while they can’t really be considered canon, they’re an interesting bit of detail for fans.
It’s a rare piece of memorabilia with Golden Glider in it, which makes it particularly noteworthy.  And there’s some original art by Carmine Infantino (he did the cover and a little bit of interior artwork), which is also of note.

Made by DC Direct, this Zoom figure in the JLA Classified line came out in 2010.  The line supposedly featured characters who were the most-requested as action figures, though I don’t know how true that is.  Frankly I’m not a fan of it; the body is far too bulky for the character and his face is a bit weird.  But some of us are completists, alas.

This 2013 book is different from the other Capstone DC books I’ve seen; the book is longer and clearly aimed at a slightly older audience (though it’s still for children).  The story is about Batman going undercover as Matches Malone to investigate a supervillain convention.  Though the Batvillains are naturally the most prominent, the Rogues are in it a fair bit.
The book is mostly text, with some illustrations.  You can see one of the art pages here.
