KIRKUS REVIEW

 A sequel to Rainbow Fish (1992), this morality tale begins when Rainbow Fish and his new friends, all ensconced in flashing scales, won't let a striped fish without a flashing scale play with them. When a shark threatens the outsider, the other fish (with the Rainbow Fish in the lead) repent, rescue it, and invite it to join in their game. The green-blue-purple illustrations have a luminous, underwater feel, and the fishwith colorful, sparkling scales, puffy lips, and big, expressive eyeslook quite sympathetic. This simple book, short and sweet, will be a hit with preschool students of ethics as well as fans of the first glittering book. (Picture book. 4-8)
