Description

Children will be delighted by this newest addition to the highly-acclaimed Anholt's Artists Books for Children series. This time, award-winning author and illustrator Laurence Anholt tells the charming story of Frida Kahlo and the Bravest Girl in the World. When a little girl named Mariana is sent to have her portrait painted by Frida, she is scared. "Well, that's okay," Frida tells her. "Everyone feels scared sometimes. Now take my hand and let's go inside." Soon, Mariana meets all of Frida's pets, from a handsome parrot and funny spider monkey to a little dog, baby deer, and beautiful eagle. Frida's home is full of wonders, and her studio is brimming with strange but beautiful paintings. As Mariana sits for her portrait, she learns all about Frida's life, and begins to think of her as the bravest woman in the world. Frida thinks Mariana is very special too--and she's got a wonderful surprise in store for her! Once again, Laurence Anholt inspires children with this much-loved art history series, which has sold more than one million copies around the world. The story, enhanced with Anholt's illustrations on every page, include several that are reproductions of Kahlo's famous paintings.show more

Review quote

"Laurence Anholt has created an enjoyable artist series that introduces children to some of the greatest artists in history through beautiful, engaging picture books. With story lines that draw the reader right in, the Anholt's Artist series is one that deserves recognition. Frida Kahlo and the Bravest Girl in the World is one of this series. Anholt's story about Frida Kahlo is one that children will readily relate to and enjoy. Frida was a unique artist and even among artists she was considered very special. Frida Kahlo and the Bravest Girl in the World does a beautiful job of introducing the reader to many of the interesting aspects of Frida's life: from the accident that almost took it to the lengths that she went to in order to avoid being crippled for her entire life, from learning to paint in a very unconventional way to being a painter that was very well respected. Mariana was a real young lady who had her portrait painted by Frida and became her friend. What better way to introduce young readers to an amazing artist than through the story of friendship. Laurence Anholt has done that with the beautifully written and illustrated Frida Kahlo and the Bravest Girl in the World." -- The Old Schoolhouse Magazine, www.theoldschoolhouse.comshow more
