劉清彥,姜義村老師根據真實故事改編,海蒂朵兒插畫繪圖 《啄木鳥女孩》繪本英文版

  我飛過荷花盛開的池塘,看見美麗的魚兒在池塘裡快樂的悠游嬉戲。
  我飛過被野花點綴成七彩花毯的原野,也和白雲在天空玩捉迷藏。
  我聽著浪濤和沙灘合唱優美的歌曲,有時輕柔,有時澎湃……

  輕快飛翔的啄木鳥,穿梭在樹林陽光灑落的每一處,但女孩一出生便無法自由的活動,直到美術老師阿海為她特製了一個像頭箍的裝置,幫她裝上了畫筆,從此,想像的世界再也沒有界線!女孩一點一點畫出腦中的畫面,一點一點「點」出不一樣的夢想,終於,像啄木鳥一樣翱翔在畫紙的繽紛色彩裡。

  Based on an actual story, a girl with cerebral palsy feels trapped in her body and unable to communicate. It causes her to grunt in anger, scaring off children and making it impossible to make friends. When her art teacher straps a paintbrush to her head, the children nickname her “Woodpecker Girl.” But the girl begins to paint her thoughts and feelings and her talent bursts through. Illustrator Huang mimicked the girl’s style for the book and the girl’s real paintings are displayed in the backmatter.

  BOOK REVIEWS

  From School Library Journal:
  PreS-Gr 4–In simple language, Yipei Huang, a young girl in a ghostly white wheelchair, explains how her cerebral palsy may have originated, spends quiet days watching others run around playing, sees her sister romp with their puppy, and wonders what it might be like if she could sing. The authors never dip into pathos, but give the story strength with a matter-of-fact approach. In illustrations that have the look of gouache dreamscapes, readers will observe a woodpecker who soars through every frame, a white bunny, and the solitary days of our heroine. An art teacher, observing the movements of her head, fits her with a band and a brush she can dip into colors and dot onto pages, and then the narrator soars, too. It is exhausting to create in this manner, she tells us, but it is what she loves, and it makes her forget everything else. Only in the back matter do we learn that Yipei Huang’s story is true and that her classmates named her “Woodpecker Girl” after watching her work. The illustrations incorporate Yipei’s own pieces, and it should surprise no one if the children who come across this book want to try being woodpeckers themselves. VERDICT The art-filled lesson that “an imperfect body can also lead to a perfect life” excludes no one from its net. A wistful, wondrous work.
