Editorial Reviews

The title character of Marcus Pfister's enchanting The Rainbow Fish returns for another resplendent round of deep-sea encounters. Delicate watercolors; watery adventures.
Publishers Weekly
Devotees of the glittery finned hero will welcome the paper-over-board Rainbow Fish Finds His Way by Marcus Pfister, trans. by J. Alison James. As Rainbow Fish's pals take shelter from an imminent storm, the hero is determined to collect some "wonderful blue pebbles," and gets caught up in a current that carries him far away. As always, the fish makes friends who help him get home. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature - Beverley Fahey
A terrible storm is gathering strength and all the fish seek shelter in a cave, but Rainbow Fish is so busy collecting blue pebbles that he does not heed the warning. Buffeted by strong currents he is swept to an unfamiliar part of the ocean. Lost in these strange waters, Rainbow meets a helpful spiky puffer fish that introduces him to a sea scallop and striped fish, which are camouflaged by their surroundings and guide him to a school of green striped fish. One of them recognizes the blue pebble tucked in his fin as a rare stone found in only one place. The school is able to lead Rainbow home where his little green striped friend is reunited with his long-lost family. The slight story, in spite of its obvious message, will no doubt appeal to Rainbow's legions of fans. Pfister's signature illustrations continue to glitter and sparkle and nicely reflect Rainbow's undersea world. This would be an acceptable addition only where Rainbow books are in high demand.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-While collecting blue pebbles from the ocean floor, Rainbow Fish disregards his friend's warnings and gets swept away in a storm. Far from his normal habitat, he finds himself lost. A puffer fish, scallop, and others attempt to guide him home, to no avail. Eventually, however, he is escorted back. Blues and greens fill the pages, which teem with fish and plant life, and Rainbow Fish wears his trademark scales and expressive face. If you have a large collection of Pfister's work, add this to it; otherwise, don't let it hook you as the story-with its moral of asking for help and helping others-doesn't make enough of a splash on its own.-Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
