Synopsis: Rainbow Fish risks his life to save a striped fish from a shark only moments after he and his friends have excluded the fish from their game of tag. As in Rainbow Fish (North-South), the sparkly foil scales pasted to the watercolors outshine the heavily didactic text.

Note to readers:
•  translated by J. Alison James

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Make a badge of your favorite character: rainbow fish, little striped fish, shark, etc. Write or draw what you like about your favorite.
•  Write or draw the story from the little striped fish's point of view.

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don't have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
