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.

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.
