The Rainbow Fish will enchant even the youngest child with his silver scales and heart of gold in a new adaptation of Marcus Pfister’s award-winning books about the beautiful fish who learned to share his most prized possession. Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia’s striking puppetry production includes two delightful companion stories, "Rainbow Fish Discovers the Deep Sea" and "Opposites."

"The sparkling story that became an international publishing phenomenon!"

Winner of The Christopher Award, the Bologna Book Fair Critici in Erba Prize, American Booksellers Association ABBY Winner, and an IRA-CBC Children’s Choice title, the sweet message of The Rainbow Fish series has resonated with children, parents, teachers, librarians, and booksellers around the world.

Presented by Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia and Kids' Entertainment
