Praise For You Can't Win Them All, Rainbow Fish

Saturated blues and greens, with splashes of yellow and pink, infuse the underwater world.

Short, simple, and to the point, the text makes clear why children in a similar situation would be unhappy, and how to resolve matters peacefully...Pfister’s signature art style, with vivid colors, fuzzy outlines, and the iconic foil highlights, is well suited to the gentle story.
