More About Marcus Pfister & J. Alison James

Marcus Pfister Marcus Pfister was born the 30th of July 1960 in Bern, Switzer-land. He attended the Art School of Bern and then completed an apprenticeship as a Graphic Designer. From 1981-1983 he worked as a Graphic Designer at the publicity agency Alexandre Ott in Zurich. He then took off six months and traveled across the United States, Canada and Mexico. When he re-turned to Switzerland he started working as an independent Graphic Artist. Between 1984 and 1985 he made the sketches for his first picture book “The Sleepy Owl". It was published in 1986 by North-South Books, this was the beginning of a long collaboration. Until 1992, Marcus worked simultaneously as a Graphic Designer and as an author/illustrator of children's books. In 1992 he burst onto the international scene with his book "The Rainbow Fish", which convinced him to focus solely on writing and illustrating his own books.

Up to now 49 books of Marcus Pfister have been published. They have been translated into more than 50 languages. The total number of published copies has exceeded 30 millions. As an illustrator, Marcus has never bound himself to a definite style of art and surprises his audience again and again with new techniques and images. One can see this in "The Magic Book" with an elaborate folder-technique, the split pages in "Milo and the Magical Stones" which tells a story with two different endings, and in "The Rainbow Fish" series with the use of holographic foil. There is always a surprise for his readers with new and exciting effects. He is now concentrating on developing new characters and artistic concepts for his picture books. Marcus Pfister has four children and lives with his family in Bern, Switzerland. His book signing tours have taken him to Korea, Japan, the United States and many European Countries. His hobbies are photographing wildlife in the Rainforest and playing

Marcus Pfister currently resides in Berne.

Another Winner!  Jun 1, 2008
I enjoyed reading this book to my elementary students. This book teaches kids not to judge others based on appearance as well as the cons of making assumptions about others (before actually getting to know them). I think the story itself could have been a little bit longer ... it seems to be too quick of a read for even primary students. Overall, a great book!
RAINBOW FISH  Oct 19, 2005
I like reading this book because the fish are sharing scales and
being kind to the other fish. I felt that this is not a true story because fish can't talk , or give other scales to another .
RAINBOW FISH  Oct 19, 2005
I LIKE READING THIS BOOK BECAUSE THE FISH are sharing scale and be in kind.

Not as good as the first...  Sep 8, 2005
I'm so glad to see that people aren't in an outrage about this part of the series. I, personally, was a huge fan of the first Rainbow fish book, and my little sister loves "Rainbow Fish to the rescue", but the third enstallment just wasn't as good. I founf myself getting extremely bored as I read it. Basically the fish are all afraid of this big whale thats been watching them from afar. So the usual jerk "The fish with the jagged fins", says that he thinks that whale wants to eat them. So the whale gets angry, and unessacairly scares the fish buy chasing thme around. Why shouldn't they be scared, some whales do eat fish. I just thought it was a bad lesson. But overall, it was ok.
Same moral, different story  Aug 13, 2005
For the third time in as many books, Marcus Pfister passes along the lesson "Be nice to others." That was the moral of the story in The Rainbow Fish; it was also the moral in Rainbow Fish to the Rescue. Why Mr. Pfister felt it necessary to bludgeon the reader over the head with it yet again in Rainbow Fish and the Big Blue Whale is truly beyond me. It wouldn't really bother me - after all, there's nothing wrong with reminding children as well as adults that it's good to be nice - except the writing itself in Big Blue Whale is so poor. As in Rainbow Fish to the Rescue, Big Blue Whale feels rushed and slipshod, as if the author threw together any old story in order to make a deadline. Even a simple, predictable and cliched story can still be well-written and enjoyable; unfortunately, Big Blue Whale is all of the former and neither of the latter. Save your money and stick to the original Rainbow Fish.
