PreS-Gr 1-Friendship takes precedence over adventure in this story. Cat wishes that his goldfish friend shared his freedom to wander, but because Bubble is confined to a fish tank, all he can do is swim "round and round, down to the bottom, up to the top." When the feline turns an empty bucket into a portable home, they are able to wander together, and Bubble's world becomes much bigger. He enjoys the views in the park and schools of fish swimming in the sea. Cat and Bubble decide to nurture their relationship by spending time together instead of living their lives apart. Large watercolor images reflect the gentle mood of this story. The humorous scene at the end of the book will have softhearted readers sighing with relief. These two unlikely friends will be together "to the rainbow's end."-Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canadaα(c) Copyright 2011.
