David Spillman; illustrated by Mark Wilson

7” x 10” • 32 pages • full-color illus.
ISBN 9781566564106 • hardback • $15.95

The yellow-eye fish were becoming scarce and smaller. Neither the Impatjara Aboriginal community nor the Newmob white community alone could find the answer to this serious problem.

Scientists from the white community came to solve the problem with their special equipment; the Aboriginal elders also had valuable knowledge about the area.

This is a story about communication—the way in which different cultures approach problems and how they view the world. It demonstrates very graphically the value of cultures working together.

David Spillman lives in Australia with his wife, Gretta, and his two children, Ruby and Archie. His work as a teacher at Titjikala School and is focused on assisting Aboriginal children to develop knowledge, skills, and confidence to successfully negotiate cultural differences. Central to this are the objectives of supporting local language and culture, teaching English as a second language, and helping children understand the Western world view, its similarities and differences to their own cultural belief system and to develop the capacity to operate successfully within Western culture.

Mark Wilson is an award-winning Australian illustrator with over 50 titles to his credit including Valley of the Bones, El Nina, Legend of the Underwater Cave, and We the Look Same. Wilson paints on canvas or thick paper with acrylic paint, ink, pencils, and crayons—often all together if it suits the picture. He uses fine sticks, old ink nibs, or his fingers, even a rag dipped in paint, just about anything except a paint brush.
