About the Author: Marcus Pfister

Marcus Pfister was born in Berne, Switzerland, and began his career as a graphic artist in an advertising agency In 1983, he decided to dedicatetime to artistic pursuits, and began to write and illustrate his first book, The Sleepy Owl, which was published in 1986 His best known work to date is The Rainbow Fish, which has remained on bestseller lists across the United States since 1992.Marcus does most of his illustrations for children s books in watercolors He begins each book by stretching watercolor paper over a wooden board so that it won t warp when wet He then copies his rough sketches onto the paper in pencil At this point, he is ready to begin painting For backgrounds and blended contours, he uses wet paint on wet paper to get a softer effect For sharper details, he first lets the paper dry, then paints the final picture layer by layer When the illustration is complete he cuts the paper from the wooden board.For books that feature holographic foil stamping, he then tapes a piece of transparent film over the art and indicates with a black marker where the foil stamping should be The foil stamping is then applied during the production process after the pages are printed and before the final binding.Marcus and his wife, Kathryn, work together in Berne, where they live with their three children.

    I m always on the look out for new, well written children s books for my son We had been reading him Help Mom There Are Liberals Under My Bed and Why Mommy is a Democrat.He loved the story and drawings However, he didn t seem to take to them as much as I thought he wouldso I decided to find something else as informative, well balanced and fun to read with my child.Then I came across The Rainbow

    Ahem Nice little book that teaches sharing, or subtle liberal socialist propaganda which teaches to give away all and anything special about yourself or what you have for the betterment of the whole You might think I m being ridiculous, but I was a bit alarmed at this children s book when a professor in a teaching class read it to us aloud Basically, Rainbow Fish is special because, unlike the ot

    I ve just read a one star review of this book that was, to me, highly amusing It has been one starred because the reviewer thinks it is nothing but socialist propaganda, in other words it s going to lead toddlers and little children straight down the Red Road to Communism I m pretty sure the reviewer is American since no one in Europe would actually care whether it was socialist propaganda or not,

    2 Rainbow Fish sA BEAUTIFUL book that has an UGLY messageI absolutely loved this book when I was in elementary school But looking back now, I don t think I completely got the message that I do now Back then I was just so enthralled by the illustrations because well let s face it the artwork is gorgeous and sparkly I thought it was a book that teaches kids the fundamentals in sharing and making friend

    Or How to Buy Friends Who Were Jealous of YouDon t get me wrong, I m all for teaching kids to share and to not act like little snots But there s something disturbing in the idea that Rainbow Fish has to give away all but one of his beautiful sparkly scales toys, possessions to the other jealous fishies so they ll be his friends.

    I m all into sharing and stuff, but this little guy was basically told that he had to give away everything that made him special just so other fish wouldn t be jealous and mean Is this fair Heck no Reminds me of one of my favorite lines from The Incredibles, when Dash says something along the lines of, If everybody s special, then NOBODY is.

    A chilling tale about a young fish who learns that no one will ever like him until he gives up the thing that makes him unique and becomes just like everyone else.Of a genre with The Giving Tree and the stalker classic Love You Forever.

    I also thought the message in this book was not good for children We have to give things to people so they will like us What Sure, this book is trying to teach about friendship and giving of oneself, but where in the book do the other fish stop being selfish and jealous Those are not qualities that should be rewarded, and the poor rainbow fish has to give away all of his lovely scales to jealous, hateful fish Ju
