Read full description of the books:
This wonderfully illustrated picture book follows on from the original story of Rainbow Fish, a beautiful but vain fish who learns to share his sparkly scales in order to make friends.
The story opens with Rainbow fish playing tag with his friends by tapping each other on the shiny scale that he gave to each of them. When a small stripy fish timidly asks if he can join in, Rainbow fish watches silently as his friends say no because he doesn't have a sparkly scale like them. Although he feels guilty he is scared to speak out against his friends in case he becomes ostracised from the group. However, when a shark stalks the reef and Stripy fish's life is in danger, Rainbow fish finds himself having to choose between what he believes is right and what the other fish want him to do.
The story is a good analogy for a common playground scenario and a brilliant way of teaching young children how to empathise with others and think about how our actions can make others feel. The story also emphasised to the children the importance of making sure that everyone is included, no matter how different they are from you. The year 1 class I was working with used the book across the curriculum and for circle time, where the pupils enjoyed describing what both Rainbow fish and Stripy fish were feeling and advising the characters on how to deal with the situation. This is a fantastic, well structured book, and is thoroughly recommended for Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1.

Read information about the authorMarcus Pfister was born in Berne, Switzerland, and began his career as a graphic artist in an advertising agency. In 1983, he decided to dedicate more time to artistic pursuits, and began to write and illustrate his first book, The Sleepy Owl, which was published in 1986. His best-known work to date is The Rainbow Fish, which has remained on bestseller lists across the United States since 1992.
Marcus does most of his illustrations for children's books in watercolors. He begins each book by stretching watercolor paper over a wooden board so that it won't warp when wet. He then copies his rough sketches onto the paper in pencil. At this point, he is ready to begin painting. For backgrounds and blended contours, he uses wet paint on wet paper to get a softer effect. For sharper details, he first lets the paper dry, then paints the final picture layer by layer. When the illustration is complete he cuts the paper from the wooden board.
For books that feature holographic foil stamping, he then tapes a piece of transparent film over the art and indicates with a black marker where the foil stamping should be. The foil stamping is then applied during the production process after the pages are printed and before the final binding.
Marcus and his wife, Kathryn, work together in Berne, where they live with their three children.
