About this deal

Jemmy Button, Merupakan salah satu peraih award the best illustrated childern's book menurut NYTimes. Their vivid illustrations bring Jemmy's feelings of isolation, loneliness and eventual belonging beautifully to life. Collaborating across continents, without a common language, Valerio'sprecision and Jennifer's primitive style have resulted in a story unlike any other. dan dari segi cerita yang emak al tangkap sangat2 pengambaran literasi poskolonial yang pastinya masih bisa dicerna dengan sederhana, yaitu ; sense of belonging. And, if O'run-del'lico was sold, how might that be indicative of British abuse of power (creating contexts in which native Yahgan people would voluntarily sell or feel forced into selling a child for a button)?

The colours and contrasts are great and a good talking point when reading this book, for example there is page that is all red and gold when he meets the king and queen - lots can be inferred from this. 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.I connect the sale of humans with slavery and human trafficking, yet there is no indication from the text that anyone should be considering questions of morality in relation to O'run-del'lico's experience. Reaching the other side of the ocean, Jemmy finds houses made of rocks “stacked in towers taller than the tallest tree.

There's a lot of emotion at work in the art from the faceless Victorians who appear as silhouettes to the lush island full of life. But if used well, it could be a powerful catalyst for deep conversation and critical thinking about history, morality, and power.

His story puts a human face on colonization and imperialistic conquest, but if it's HIS story, why isn't it told from his perspective with the complexity that a story like his deserves? While the illustrations continuously cast the British as faceless silhouettes (a powerful choice) and draw attention to O'run-del'lico in color and detail, the story resonates the colonizers' point of view, erasing whatever feelings, responses, or experiences O'run-del'lico may have been having.
