The star of several picture books, Rainbow Fish is back in his first pop-up book, with the sparkling protagonist meeting some other aquatic creatures. The interactive elements add layering and a sense of movement as Rainbow navigates the underwater world: “Who is hiding behind those leaves? Six small seahorses!” On another spread, a blue whale tail flops up and down as the discombobulated fish “go tumbling on the Big Whale Ride!” The special effects enhance the familiar, gentle illustrations. Ages 3–up. (May)
