The Theefyspray by Paul Jennings and Jane Tanner

What an amazing picture book! This books promotes the preservation of what is rare in this world. It is primarily about loss and the importance of personal responsibility. The presence of the ancient fish, the Theefspray dominates the pages of the book. The mood of the book is emphasised through the use of different colours, blue for sadness and yellow for the element of hope the reader is left with at the conclusion of the story. The following is a link to a blog entry showcasing the negotiated products the kids made inspired by this book.
