More About 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

A Fabulous Fish! May 16, 2008
Another classic for any children's book collection. This German-language book is fantastic for educational use (I'm a MS & HS German teacher) as well as to teach young ones the importance of sharing. The pictures are beautiful as well.
VERY GOOD! Jan 3, 2007
This book is a must have for all children libraries! even as a grown up you learn the very important message from Rainbowfish and his friends. the pcitures are beautiful, full of color without being confusing to a child's eyes. The text is easy to read and understand.

great teaching tool that kids love Jun 9, 2003
My three year old daughter loves Regenbogenfisch, and we read the story often. The illustrations are beautiful. I am also using this book to help teach my daughter and some of her friends German, which they love. It has a sweet story about sharing that children can relate to.
Great Book! Oct 3, 2000
My husband is teaching my two kids German as a second language and this book with the glittering pictures and excellent story is perfect. The kids get very excited when he brings it out. It's amazing how quickly kids can pick up a second language when the learning materials are fun. To anyone who wants to teach their kids German: skip the stuff made to teach a language and buy Marcus Pfister's books translated in German. Your kids won't be able to get enough of them!
