The Rainbow Fish
Winner of the Children's ABBY Award 1995
The Rainbow Fish is an international best-seller and a modern classic. Eye-catching foilstamping, 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.
