A fascinating Mexican artist and one of the world's most influential painters, Frida Kahlo is remembered for her self-portraits, her dramatic works featuring bold and vibrant colors. Her work brought attention to Mexican and indigenous culture and she is also renowned for her works celebrating the female form. Written by Monica Brown and illustrated by John Parra, the book playfully considers how Kahlo embodied many wonderful characteristics of each animal that inspired her art and life.
