Summary

Danson is a collection of 50 poems by an 8-year-old non-verbal autistic boy, Danson Wambua, with commentary by his mother Michele. This book comes at a moment of intense public focus on the mysteries of autism. For the families of over a million autistic children, Danson's poems offer hope and illumination. Imprisoned by his autism for the first 7 years of his life alternately frustrated, angry and loving Danson suddenly begins to speak, pointing to letters on an alphabet board. What he reveals in his extraordinary conversations with his mother Michele, is the complex inner world of autism. Danson is a gifted child-poet (reminiscent of Mattie Stepanek) who writes with insight, intelligence and spiritual depth. This is the voice that is going to change the lives of all the children of need, says admirer Bill Cosby.
