內容簡介


一個充滿愛、希望與勇氣的故事。 

艾莉絲,兩歲時被診斷出患有自閉症, 
語言、社交、學習能力比一般孩子遲緩, 
無法與人互動,也無法與人眼神接觸; 
太多聲音、太複雜的人群會令她瘋狂, 
甚至推開摯愛的親人,將自己鎖在沉默之中。 

花園與大自然能讓她感到平靜, 
而貓咪「圖拉」的陪伴,更是逐漸解開寂靜的枷鎖; 
艾莉絲開始懂得控制情緒,保持平靜, 
她也與周圍的人產生連結,開啟學習能力且願意改變。 

艾莉絲展現的絕讚藝術天分,讓她的故事更添一抹驚奇。 
她的畫不但激勵與感動自閉症患者,為許多人帶來勇氣, 
更替自己找到穩定的力量,也為原本灰暗的世界中注入繽紛。
書介出自遠見天下文化出版《艾莉絲的莫內花園: 天才自閉症女孩的彩繪人生》

'Ever since we came home with Thula, this precious magical kitten has cast a spell over Iris. They sit beside each other as Iris paints, and new doorways to communication have been opened, doors we had previously feared might be locked forever.' Iris Grace is six years old and severely autistic. For the first few years of her life she barely communicated at all - she hardly ever looked up when her parents walked into a room, she rarely smiled or spoke. Her mother Arabella despaired - Iris seemed to be trapped in her own world, unreachable. Then one day the family decided to get a cat, Thula, with whom Iris had an immediate affinity. She appeared to open up and communicate with Thula in a way that she hadn't done before. The little girl who seemed to be lost in her own world slowly blossomed. Iris is an extraordinarily gifted artist who sees the world in a profoundly vivid and visceral way, and with Thula by her side, she will sit and paint for hours. This book isn't the story of a genius or child prodigy (although Iris is almost certainly both of those things), this is the story of how a remarkable bond between a cat and a child saved a family. Beautifully written, readers will be spellbound by the story of Iris Grace and her devoted pet cat Thula.
