K-Gr 2-Rainbow Fish and his friends are inexplicably confronted by an enormous blue whale. Will the giant mammal gobble up the surrounding weeds and finish them off? Anxieties abound in the ocean deep, leading to some misassumptions about the whale's intent. As it happens, the giant of all sea life is simply enchanted by the brilliant scales reflecting off these tiny creatures as they frolic through the waters. Through patience and open communication, Rainbow Fish learns the truth and saves the day. An entertaining read-aloud illustrated in Pfister's familiar watercolor and silver leafing style.-Selene S.
