Event Description

THE RAINBOW FISH - MERMAID THEATRE OF NOVA SCOTIA

LIMITED AVAILABILITY


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’s striking puppetry production includes two delightful companion stories: Rainbow Fish Discovers the Deep Sea and Opposites.

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.
