Jemmy Button

Italian illustrator Valerio Vidali has collaborated with American illustrator Jennifer Uman to make a magical little book, 'Jemmy Button', the story of a boy from Tierra del Fuego who is bought by HMS Beagle's captain with a pearl button, sent to England to be 'civilized', only to return to the jungle a year later...
