About this deal

There aren't too many lines to read between, but doing so reveals a sad view of colonialism and race relations. tapi meskipun sudah dididik untuk jadi bagian mereka tp si anak ngerasa ttp not quite, ia ttp ngerasa ini bukanlah rumahnya. The fact that he went back to who he was after being offered and almost changed so much is so inspiring and shows his loyalty to who he was as a person and who he belonged to culturally. The illustrations are captivating and show how isolated Jemmy Button feels particularly because the European people have been shown as silhouettes and dark figures. Orundellico/Jemmy was one of four Fuegian natives taken by ship to England, and he wasn’t a boy, as depicted here, but a teenager of 15 to 16.

This treatment brings the story home for young readers and provides an excellent discussion-starter. White people and England are depicted through prim paper cut art, as opposed to the loose lines and lush colors used for Jemmy (whose head often looks like a red-orange thumbprint with hair) and the Argentinian and ocean scenery. The text presents evidence that his adoptive family doted on and gave him all manner of things to ensure their care. The people who took him back to their land introduced him to so many new things and changed his style and his life in so many ways.

What happened to the real Orundellico (aka Jemmy Button) had to have been a traumatic event, one I'm sure that must have left life-long scars.

Collaborating across continents, without a common language, Valerio'sprecision and Jennifer's primitive style have resulted in a story unlike any other. How people get places and how interconnected we are as a world would be a point that I would want to highlight.

I loved the illustrations in this book; my 2yo did, took and had fun pointing out Jemmy on each page. The fact that people tried to change him so much and that he almost acted like the people that offered him a new culture but then ultimately never changed who he was resonated with me at my core.

I know that this is a book for children, and I appreciate that the stories of lesser-known figures in history are being told, but I can’t co-sign a book that presents the story of white men taking a child away from his parents and parading him around England like a pet or a side show, as a morally neutral event. The picture book text says O'run-del'lico was "invited" to visit England, which may or may not have been the case.

students may be able to relate to leaving "home" and having to try and make themselves feel at home somewhere else.However, these illustrations grabbed her imagination and she was able to tell her own fantastic tale and took pleasure in examining the details in the images.
