Jemmy Button by Alix Barzelay
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Longlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal 2014 Inspired by the life of Jemmy Button – a native of Tierra del Fuego who was brought to England in the mid-1800s to be 'educated' and 'civilised' by Captain Robert FitzRoy – this book illustrates Jemmy's bizarre encounters and his return back home. Collaborating across continents, without a common language, Valerio's precision and Jennifer's primitive style have resulted in a story unlike any other.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
