Once Upon a Rainbow tells the story of a curious, young river otter floating happily on her back on a clear mountain stream. Her name is Mazie, and there’s no place she would rather be than at home in the beaver pond with her family and friends.

One day storm clouds roll in, and when
the sky clears, a dazzling rainbow appears. Mazie has never seen a rainbow before, and she asks herself a question we’ve all wondered at one time or another: What’s at the end of
the rainbow?

Mazie leaves her pond to search for the
answer, and along the way she discovers
that she can count on her community
of friends and her own perseverance.
She also learns that there can be many
answers to the same question. But for
Mazie, there’s only one answer.
