Young children love Marcus Pfister’s colorful story and its two companion tales, Rainbow Fish Discovers the Deep Sea and Opposites. The most beautiful fish in the sea changes a boastful attitude about his shimmering, rainbow-colored scales, learning to be kind and share with his underwater friends. Next, after losing his last shiny scale in the deep sea, Rainbow Fish finds the courage to explore a wonderful new world with creatures of all shapes, sizes, and colors eager meet him. Finally, little audiences enjoy an ocean full of opposites, all with innovative puppetry, breathtaking scenic and lighting effects, and original music.
