The Rainbow Fish

By Marcus Pfister
Illustrated by Marcus Pfister

The Rainbow Fish is an international best-seller and a modern classic.

Eye-catching foil stamping, glittering on every page, offers instant child appeal, but it is the universal message at the heart of this simple story about a beautiful fish who learns to make friends by sharing his most prized possessions that gives the book its lasting value.
