Great version of the world beyond or within a rainbow. The familiars of a wizard, a dog, 3 cats, a snake and a canary are given human form to avenge the death of the wizard and bring colors back into the world.
That's the one!! I was away from home for years and couldn't recall the title...only how much I enjoyed it as a kid. I probably would as an adult, too~ all the emphasis on attributes of color and the quirky worlds of each as told by Foster. Delightful, hilarious, and charming. One of my favorite stand-alone fantasy novels of childhood.

I liked the book a lot. Foster's specialty, creating believable aliens/creatures, lifts this above the average quest stories. In places I would have liked the story to move faster, but overall, it was an enjoyable read.

My favorite character was the snake Samm, but the other humanized animals were good too. The rest of the cast paled in comparison. However, the details for the worlds the friends had to travel, were vibrant and very creative. It's a good book, but I believe it's best for slightly

I could've sworn I had already marked this book as read...

Oh well! I picked this book up at a dollar store a long time ago and really enjoyed it. It is your basic high-fantasy, talking-animals-save-the-day, fight-against-darkness type of book. I really like Alan Dean Foster's writing style and I've since read a few more of his novels. :)
This book was really cute and hard to find. I finally found a copy and read it really fast. I recommend this to anyone who likes magic and animals.
Standard fantasy fare in which a group of beings, in this case animals that have been turned into humans, go on a quest to save their kingdom.
I really enjoyed this book. Each land that the characters traveled were a different color and the color matched the temperaments of the people.
A light hearted fantasy novel about a bunch of enchanted animals turned human ..
This book was so fun! Adventure, talking animals/humans & magic.
Not high adult fantasy, but a very good story that was imaginative.
original idea with mediocre implementation
Here's a fun book that never quite gets beyond that. With a gimmick of former animals as the protagonists, the book is basically a long trip through the rainbow. That is good, because the scenes before and after it are pretty standard stuff. As usual, I enjoyed Foster's creativity in populating the kingdoms of colors, particularly the threats in the kingdom of yellow. However, none of the characters ever move beyond their one personality trait that was dominant in their pet form. The twist endin ...more
