"Iris Grace is six years old and severely autistic. For the first few years of her life she barely communicated at all u she hardly ever looked up when her mother walked into a room, she rarely smiled or spoke. Her mother Arabella despaired u Iris seemed to be trapped in her own world, unreachable. 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 opened, doors we had previously feared might be locked for ever."

A beautifully charming book. The story of a mother learning to connect with her autistic, but extremely gifted, young daughter, this gem of a book would be of particular interest to those who struggle to understand children who might be 'different'.
